Public Works Capital Projects Update 2019
Lett’s Cemetery Road
Project: Federal/Provincial grant road improvements
Revised Project: Bank stabilization and engineering with grant approval in 2019
Revised Budget: $75,000.00
Comments: Informal approval of the grant has been received by the Township. Once formal approval and an agreement with the government are signed work can be started. Engineering, planning and a tendering component may be possible in September. This component of the project is estimated to require 60 working days. The last possible workday for a project of this type should not be past November 30th.
There is the possibility of some work being completed in 2019. This would be specifically engineering and bank stabilization.
Island View Drive
Project: Road allowance survey and engineering.
Revised Project: Pulverize, cross drainage, brushing
Revised Budget: $100,000.00 $50,000.00 transfer from Letts Cemetery Project
Comments: This road has failed and requires constant patching to maintain a safe usable surface. Budgeted based on the previous Council’s desire to rebuild the road was surveying and engineering in 2019.
Staying completely in the existing footprint improvements can be made without surveying and engineering. Basically pulverize repair base, repair four cross drainage issues, brushing and apply dust control in 2019. In 2020 double surface the road.
Presently due to an overage on the Grist Mill project, there are more than 1500 tonnes of gravel stockpiled at Golden lake that can be used on the project specifically at the east end in the swampy area
