Residents of an Oshawa neighborhood could face irregular lane closures, water cut-offs and need on-street parking permits, as construction begins for a new water main on Grenfell Street, Marland Avenue and Montrave Avenue.
JUST THE FACTS
• The Region of Durham awarded the contract to Hard-Co Construction Ltd., and work began in early April.
• During the construction, the roads will be open to traffic but there will be lane restrictions — possibly down to one lane during construction and drivers may be delayed by the work.
• Residents who live in the area may have temporary water supply shutdowns during construction. To give the household time to prepare, the contractor will notify impacted properties at least 24 hours in advance of any water interruptions.
• There may be times when residents are unable to access their driveways due to this work. Residents will be notified if their vehicles need to be moved out of the driveway, and will need a permit to park on the street for more than three hours. Visit Oshawa.ca/ParkingPermit or call 905-436-3311, and provide a contract number for a free parking permit.
• The construction work may include the use of vibratory equipment, which may be felt inside nearby homes.
• It’s expected to take until the fall to complete the work to install the new water main.
