Water Service Connection Update


Water Service Connection Update

The water service connections will take place on Tuesday, (06/19) and Wednesday, (06/20), for Menna’s Joint, Black Cat Bistro and Harper’s. In order to have the least amount of impact on the businesses, an extended hours request has been submitted for both days, (06/19 and 06/20) to begin work at 6 a.m. The work is being phased to accommodate pedestrian access to the businesses during this work. City staff and representatives from the project have visited the businesses in the affected area to discuss the plan and coordinate connections.

As a reminder, the Contractor has submitted an extended hours request for one day either Tuesday, (06/19) or Wednesday (06/20) to complete the existing water main cut and cap at the intersection of Abbot Road and Albert Ave. This work requires the closure of Abbot Road from Grand River to Albert Avenue, which is expected to occur during the nighttime hours from 7pm to 7am. Vehicles headed southbound on Abbot will be detoured to Oakhill Avenue.
