IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE WINTER
+ Contractor will demobilize off site as of Wednesday, December 19, 2018. The Contractor provided emergency numbers and will be available to respond, if needed, over the winter months. Over the winter months, the roadway will be maintained by the Regional Operations Department.
+ Both site trailers will remain near the Pumping Station until the Spring. At that time, if our current Vendor is successful on winning Phase 2, both trailers will remain until December 2019. If not, they will be removed around May/June and a new Vendor will select a new location within Phase 2.
+ All newly constructed sidewalks will be kept closed until Spring 2019 due to: a small section of incomplete sidewalk around the bridge area, outstanding bridge and culvert railings and incomplete pattern colour concrete splash pads. Proper signage was placed. The Town of Caledon was notified. Sidewalks will not be plowed.
+ Newly constructed lay-by will be kept closed until Spring 2019 due to: incomplete permanent (durable) thermoplastic line markings for parking stalls and sidewalks being closed. Proper signage was placed. The Regional Operations Department was notified. Lay-by will not be plowed.
+ All newly installed ‘share the road’ signs (bicycle signage) will be bagged until Spring 2019 due to: incomplete permanent (durable) thermoplastic line markings.
+ Install and keep until March two Portable Variable Message Broads advising of the new speed limit and road conditions ahead
+ We are hoping to secure a Vendor for Phase 2 works by the end of February, 2019. The project will commence by the end of March
