Dorothea Drive Culvert Replacement

We are replacing a 50-year-old stormwater pipe on Dorothea Drive. The new pipe will allow the stream to flow better and help reduce flooding. 

The road will be closed between S. Saunders Street and Florence Street until the project is complete.

Construction

We've shift the construction start date due to scheduling availability and materials shortage. Crews are now working on site as of May 7.

Construction

  • Prepare the site for construction; and,
  • Replace the water valve that's connected to the drinking water system. This needs to be done before we can replace the stormwater culvert on the road.

We've worked with the contractor to ensure that this worksite follows appropriate guidelines.

Road Closure Info

  • Residents still have driveway access during the road closure; 
  • Access from S. Saunders St. is limited to the east side of the pipe; and, 
  • You can access the road from Florence St.
