This two-week look ahead schedule highlights upcoming planned construction activities and work hours, including low impact nighttime work and anticipated noise levels.
We don’t anticipate the activities scheduled over the next two weeks will generate noise beyond typical ambient noise levels, but we are continuing to monitor construction-related noise and will make adjustments as required.
Maintenance Holes and Bypass Construction
Per the notification issued on June 28, construction of two new maintenance holes required for North Shore Wastewater Treatment Plant Project pipe connections has started. The maintenance holes will be located in the West 1st Street laneway, just north of West 1st Street and east of Philip Avenue. Bypass pipe testing and commissioning is anticipated to take place during the week of August 22 and excavation and shoring of Maintenance Hole #1 will begin shortly thereafter.
Some noise and vibration impacts are anticipated for businesses in close proximity to this work and noise shielding, and vibration monitoring protocols have been put in place to mitigate related concerns. The construction of the new maintenance holes is anticipated to be complete in October 2021.
