Sidewalk & road reconstruction Plains Rd, Maple to Helena

road work generic

Minor reconstruction of Plains Road East from Maple Avenue to Helena Street is expected to begin mid-September and includes the following scope of work:

• Storm sewer replacement
• Road asphalt replacement
• Curbs and sidewalk replacement

There are no extended road closures scheduled on this project. A full road closure will be permitted at night between the hours of 7:00pm and 6:30am for asphalt removal and paving activities. Single lane restrictions will occur during the day between the hours of 7:00am to 5:00pm for all other construction activities, including concrete repairs and storm sewer replacement.

It is expected that the roadways will be in a gravel state for an extended period of time at which point the contractor will suppress any dust and/or nuisance caused by the granular with a dust-controlling agent.

The storm sewer work and base coat of asphalt is expected to be completed by mid-November. The remaining work, including top coat of asphalt, will be completed in the Spring of 2018.

  1. Hello Marianne. During the re-construction of Old Plains road, great chance to do something with the eyesore that is the C.N. railway bridge. It reduces the tone of the whole neighbourhood.Now that we have the beautiful Habitat building I think it is time to put pressure on C.N. to put a lick of paint on that rusty edifice.

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.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
