Update or Potential Impacts

A road closure will be in effect for Scotch Street at Main Street for a duration of four weeks, starting May 23rd. This closure is required to facilitate the relocation of telecommunications cables located within the designated construction zone prior to the installation of the microtunneling shaft. During this period, residents along Scotch Street will be able to access their properties via Daniel Street.

Efforts will be made to manage traffic around the work area for the safety of workers, road users and residents.
Two-way traffic flow and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the course of construction. Local businesses will be open during construction.

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.
