Update or Potential Impacts

Due to the open-cut construction method required for the installation of the gravity sewer and watermain, the work area along Trafalgar Road between Upper Canada Drive/Church Street and the Elora Cataract Trail access point will be closed to through-traffic for the duration of construction. Local access for residents, businesses, emergency vehicles and pedestrians will be maintained at all times. Local businesses will be open throughout construction.


Efforts will be made to manage traffic around the work area for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on Wellington Road 22, Sideroad 17, Highway 124, Winston Churchill Boulevard and Erin Garafraxa Townline.


Hillsburgh through-traffic along Trafalgar Road will be redirected to Winston Churchill Boulevard via Wellington Road 22 and Erin Garafraxa Townline during the construction period. Detour routes will be clearly marked with traffic signs along the approach roads into Hillsburgh, which will be in place prior to the closure of Trafalgar Road. Detour routes for vehicular traffic are illustrated below.


Work will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Work after hours or on weekends may be required during the course of construction.


Increased truck traffic, dirt on roads, dust and noise may be experienced due to the construction activities. The Town, along with the Contactor, will make every effort to minimize these impacts to the community.



The Town will not be responsible for damage to any privately owned items on Town or County property.
