Public Notice - Arnprior Ave. / Ross Street Reconstruction

Posted On: Thursday, June 11, 2020

Dear Renfrew Property Owner, Stakeholder, Resident:

Renfrew Town Council has awarded the Arnprior Avenue and Ross Street Reconstruction project to Bonnechere Excavating Inc. (BEI). 

COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the Town of Renfrew is committed to protecting people and the community.   The Province of Ontario has allowed certain businesses and workplaces to reopen, including all municipal construction projects, as long as they comply with strict measures for public health and safe operations.  The Town is working with BEI and complying with restrictions and recommendations provided by health officials and the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.

The limits of the project are: Arnprior Avenue from Ross Street to Queen Street South and Ross Street from Thompson Avenue to Arnprior Avenue.  Work will include the installation of watermain between Bank Street South and Queen Street South on Arnprior Avenue, storm sewer improvements on Arnprior Avenue, minor sanitary sewer improvements on Ross Street, road reconstruction and new sidewalk on the north side of Arnprior Avenue only.  Construction is expected to begin mid-June and complete by the end of September, subject to delays due to weather or other unexpected issues.

In preparation for the start of construction and to establish the existing interior and exterior conditions within nearby buildings, a preconstruction survey will be completed by the contractor.  This will provide base information should there be a concern during or after construction with respect to any damages.  BEI has retained OZA to complete the preconstruction survey.  A member of OZA will visit each property in the project area to take pictures to provide a record of existing conditions.  We encourage participation in this survey as it provides protection to private assets and a base line for possible claims.

Curbside garbage and recycling collection will remain the same practice as currently, but we ask that businesses and residents mark their business name and address on their cans or containers.  BEI will communicate any special needs with respect to garbage and recycling during the construction.

The Town and the contractor will take precautions to minimize interruptions, but as you can appreciate, there will be some inconvenience during the construction.  If you have any concerns related to the project or require special accessibility accommodations, please let us know by contacting the project manager noted below.  The Town of Renfrew would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation with the upcoming construction project.
