ARTHUR STREET RECONSTRUCTION

RESIDENT NOTICE

The Township of North Huron and the Township of Morris-Turnberry are undertaking servicing related construction work on portions of Arthur Street and North Street.

This project has an anticipated start date of July 3rd, 2018 and is expected to be completed by mid-Fall, 2018.

B.M. Ross and Associates from Goderich are the engineers for the project.  The general contractor for this project is Lavis Contracting Co. Ltd.

Arthur Street is a partial reconstruction project, including installation of a sanitary sewer and watermain where it does not already exist. Work will also include service installations to various lots fronting on Arthur Street.  Disturbed asphalt road surfaces will be restored to their current state.  Lawn areas will be restored with topsoil and seed. Watermain installation on North Street will be adjacent to the paved surface.

There may be times when the street is obstructed with construction activities, however, the contractor will be required to accommodate shipping and delivery vehicles to all properties during construction.

Garbage and recycling should be set out for collection at the normal time and location. Your waste and recycling bins should be marked with your dwelling number as the constructor may need to carry them to the end of the street and return them if his work operations are blocking access for the collection vehicle.

This is an intrusive construction project and your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
