Watermain replacement and improvements

Notice of construction. East Avenue. Project 21-1310H

The Region of Peel will be repairing driveways, roads, curbs, sidewalks, and sod (grass) following the replacement of the watermain on East Avenue.

Restoration schedule

This restoration work will begin in November 16. We plan to complete all restoration work by December 2, 2022, weather permitting.

Restoration work will begin by fixing curbs and sidewalks. This will be followed by driveway and road paving repairs. Sod will then be replaced where grass has been damaged. This process will take approximately 2 weeks if weather conditions are favourable.

Please note that repairs may be delayed due to contractor availability or weather conditions.

For example:

Contractor and working hours

The work will be overseen by N.S.J. WaterWorx under contract to the Region of Peel. This contractor’s normal working hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the local municipality’s bylaws. We understand this may cause some inconvenience, but shorter working days would require your neighbourhood to be under construction for a longer period of time.

Traffic and parking

We may need to reduce traffic to a single lane during this work. If we must reroute traffic, we will place signs giving directions. On-street parking will be reduced when we are actively working on your street. If you need to park on the street, please park outside the active construction zone.

In-ground sprinkler systems

If the area in front of your home or business was affected by the construction work, in-ground sprinkler lines may be impacted during the upcoming repairs to sod, driveways, sidewalks and curbs. We strongly recommend moving any sprinkler lines that are located next to the sidewalk or driveway, or within the municipally owned right-of-way. The right-of-way is the land owned by the municipality between the street and your water service box (small, round metal valve in either your driveway or lawn).

If you can’t relocate these sprinkler lines, please:

This will allow us to minimize the impact to your sprinkler system.

Replacing and taking care of your sod

The contractor will replace any damaged sod (grass) on the boulevard or your front lawn, and will take care of the new sod for 30 days. You can help the sod stay healthy by watering it. A longer ‘deep root watering’ works better to establish new sod than watering more frequently for a shorter time. Watering in the early morning allows more water to soak in rather than evaporating.

Temporary restoration

Your City of Mississauga is planning to complete roadwork on your street within the next few years. As this roadwork may impact the driveway, boulevard, street, curbs, and sidewalks, we will:

The Region of Peel’s repairs are temporary, as the City of Mississauga will complete restoration as part of their roadwork. The City of Mississauga will send you a separate notice about this additional construction.

Driveway access and parking

We may need to block your driveway for a short time during paving activities. Whenever possible, we will work to ensure businesses can be accessed.

Please avoid parking in your driveway when it is being repaired to provide maximum access to the construction crew. The construction crew will knock on your door before work on your driveway begins. If you will not be home weekdays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. during driveway paving, please do not leave any vehicles in the driveway.

Once the driveway is repaired, it is important to avoid driving on the new asphalt for the first three hours afterwards, and to avoid parking on the new asphalt for one day.

To provide an alternate parking location, we have arranged for a street parking enforcement exemption from the City of Mississauga for First and Third Street from Greaves Ave. to Westmount Ave. This exemption is valid until December 2, 2022. Please note that all other parking laws remain in place, including proper clearance from hydrants and stop signs.

Please email if you have special needs related to driveway access.

Road repairs

We will repair the road where it was disturbed by our recent watermain construction. We expect these paving activities to begin around November 21, 2022, weather permitting. We will provide a separate notice with more details on road paving closer to the date.

Warranty on construction repairs

Repair work completed as part of this watermain replacement project is under warranty for two years from the completion date.

It is normal for repaired areas to settle a bit in the coming months. If you notice large potholes forming where the driveway, street, or lawn was repaired, please let us know and we will ensure the contractor fixes this before the end of the warranty period.

Safety during construction

Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible. Learn more about how to stay safe in construction zones.
