2023 – Carbondale Road realignment & drainage / re-oiling


Project Highlights

The Project 

Carbondale realignment project: The current alignment of Carbondale Road is outside of the proper right-of-way. The correct alignment is about 20 metres northeast of its current location. Moving the road to the correct right-of-way will also allow for drainage control and future erosion. Weather permitting, the project should take about two months to complete.

Carbondale drainage and re-oiling project: This work will involve installing guardrails, culvert replacements, ditching and brushing.

The Scope of Work

  • The reconstruction of about 750 metres of roadway.
  • The removal and replacement of centreline culverts.
  • Roadside ditching and addressing erosion control issues.
  • Regrading of the area where the current alignment exists.

What This Means to You

Construction will involve slow moving equipment and noise during daytime working hours.

As much as possible, there will be continuous access for traffic managed by construction crews. There is the potential for a brief road closure.

Re-oiling will take place in phases with advance resident notification.
