Downtown Road Surface Repairs

Cenotaph

Tender Contract Number: ITT-03-24

The City has awarded this project to IPAC Paving Limited. The Contractor is scheduled to mobilize in May 2024. The work is scheduled to be completed by the fall of 2025.

The scope of work generally includes the removal/disposal/supply/set of select frames, covers, and grates, resetting of valve boxes, select curb removal, curb re-installations, milling of existing asphalt, base asphalt repairs, application of emulsified asphalt tack coat, installation of hot mix asphalt, and the application of pavement markings. These upgrades may not address all drainage issues as this is not a full reconstruction and the project cannot correct existing grading or drainage deficiencies.

Milling and surface asphalt placement is proposed on the following streets:

Peterborough Utilities Group will be completing underground watermain rehabilitation at the above noted locations in 2024 with resurfacing of roads to follow in 2025.

In general, to facilitate this work;

  • Brock Street, Simcoe Street, King Street and Murray Street located between George Street and Water Street will experience short-term road closures with posted detours during the time when construction works are occurring. This is expected to cause impact for a duration of 1-2 days for milling and 1-2 days of paving operations.
  • George Street, Water Street, Sheridan Street, Brock Street, McDonnel Street and Parkhill Road West will be reduced to a single lane of traffic during operations, including the elimination of parking along the roadways during structure adjustments, milling and paving.
  • Milling and paving of George Street and Water Street is proposed to proceed during night operations.
  • Access for local traffic and businesses will be maintained during road closures, however, it is expected that local traffic may experience delays within the construction limits.

More concise and/or revised information as it relates to public impacts will be provided when issuing location specific construction notices for this project.
