Full closure of Picton Town Hill intersection extended another day

UPDATE: The full closure of the Picton Main Street and Bridge Street intersection (Picton Town Hill) has been extended until 7 a.m. Thursday, July 28.

One lane of traffic was expected to reopen by 7 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27. However, a key piece of equipment for excavating, rock breaking, placement of pipe, and backfilling broke down, causing a delay in the work that has necessitated an extension of the full closure.

The full closure is required in order to safely replace a sanitary maintenance hole more than five metres deep. A detour route has been established as shown on the attached map and local traffic can access the downtown and Bridge Street through various side streets. This work is part of the project to reconstruct Picton Main Street from Bridge Street to Johnson Street.

A full closure of the Picton Main and Bridge Street intersection (Picton Town Hill) is planned for July 25 – 27.

The full closure of the intersection and overnight work will occur, weather permitting, from 7 a.m. on Monday, July 25 continuously through to 7 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27.

The intent of the closure is to minimize the impact on adjacent residences and businesses as much as possible and limit traffic congestion. Allowing overnight activity will reduce the closure duration from five days to two days. Rock breaking will not be permitted overnight.

One lane of traffic will be back in operation on Wednesday, July 27, with two traffic lanes open before the weekend.

During previous sanitary sewer construction work on Bridge Street, the contractor identified an unforeseen condition on an existing maintenance hole. A sanitary maintenance hole more than five metres deep needs to be replaced to accommodate the deepening of an enlarged sanitary sewer to better serve existing and future developments. The work cannot be done safely without the full closure of the intersection.

A detour route will be established as shown on the attached map and local traffic will be able to access the downtown and Bridge Street through various side streets. This work is part of the project to reconstruct Picton Main Street from Bridge Street to Johnson Street.

    Everyone and anyone – please follow the detours; and be aware of your speed. Use caution – we’ve had some near misses on the side streets due to the large volume of traffic, and some speeding drivers. Thank you.
