This letter will be sent to area residents affected by the Region of Halton – PR-2931D Notice of Lane Restrictions and Road Closures Final_Second Feedermain to Washburn Reservoir (002)


Notice of Lane Restrictions and Road Closures – from Monday, April 22-Friday, May 3, 2019

About this Project


Please be advised that Halton Region will be relocating existing Bell Canada infrastructure on Prospect Street at the Hydro One Corridor (between Cumberland Avenue and Dynes Road), Wards 2 and 4, City of Burlington, in order to allow for the installation for a future water valve chamber.

The chamber will be used to connect the newly-built 900 mm feedermain (watermain) on Prospect Street with the existing 1050 mm feedermain at the Hydro One Corridor. This feedermain is required to expand the water system to facilitate growth within the Region.

In order to complete this work, there will be lane restrictions and road closures on Prospect Street as noted below:

  • Daily Lane Restrictions from Monday, April 22 to Friday, May 3, 2019 between Dynes Road and Cumberland Avenue;
  • Nightly Road Closures between Dynes Road and the Hydro One Corridor from Monday, April 29-Friday, May 3, 2019, between 10 a.m.-6 a.m. Buses will be detoured during the road closure. Motorists travelling east on Prospect Street will be detoured south along Dynes Road to Woodward Avenue, then north on Cumberland Avenue. Those travelling west will be detoured south along Cumberland Avenue to Woodward Avenue, then north on Dynes Road to Prospect Street (see map).

Please note there will be some restrictions to driveways within this work area, but access will be maintained at all times. Motorists should expect delays when travelling through the area. The road is expected to fully re-open on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

Residents adjacent to the road closure should also expect an increase in noise levels from the nightly construction activity. Every effort will be made to minimize the amount of noise generated by this work and to complete the construction work as quickly as possible to lessen the overall impact of the road closure.

We thank you for your continued patience as we complete this project.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
