Please be advised that the Town of New Tecumseth has recently awarded the Rogers Road Reconstruction contract (“Works”) to Direct Underground Inc. (“Contractor”). Triton Engineering Services Limited (“Consultant”) has been retained to provide Contract Administration and Inspection services for this project on behalf of the Town.


Reconstruction of Rogers Road extends from Queen Street South to Dillane Street East. The Works entail but are not limited to: earth excavation, granular base, hot mix asphalt, storm sewers, concrete curb and gutter, concrete sidewalk, streetlighting, and all other work necessary for a complete job in accordance with the details set out in the tender document.


Rogers Road will be closed to through traffic from July 2nd to August 23rd to accommodate the road reconstruction works and pursuant to the Road Use and Care By-law 2022-108. Local and emergency access will be maintained at all times.


 Some minor works such as installation of tree protection fencing, environmental control fencing, locates, surveying, test pits, and utility daylighting will occur in advance of the July 2nd road closure and will be completed under a single lane closure.


 Construction and advisory signs will be erected prior to construction. Signed detour routes will be provided to direct motorists around the road closure. We advise that when driving or walking through and around the construction work zone, that you follow and obey the construction signage for your safety and for the safety of the workers.

 Other Important Information
 
Building Pre-Construction Survey
Prior to the start of construction, the Contractor will also be carrying out a pre-construction survey of the project area. This is to provide a record in the unlikely event that any damage occurs as a result of the construction activities. The survey will consist of an inspection of both the interior and exterior of buildings/property to verify existing conditions. A separate notice from OZA will be circulated to schedule these surveys with affected residents. Participation is on a voluntarily basis; it is, however, recommended as we note that it is important to measure to determine if any losses are caused by the construction activities.
Restoring Driveways
Per the Town’s engineering standards, contract, and past practices, driveway reinstatement will occur as follows:
  1. Driveway material is to be replaced like for like. For gravel driveways the Town portion of the right-of-way to property line will be paved with asphalt.
  2. All driveway restoration is to be completed to property line with a gradient between a minimum and maximum of 2.0% and 7.0% respectively.
  3. Under certain circumstances where the road elevation has changed it may necessitate grading beyond the property line. In these cases, advanced notices are provided to the Owner(s) and a permission to enter/grading agreement is required to carry out the necessary restoration work. Upon completion, a final release form is required from the Owner(s) confirming that they are satisfied with the work completed.
  4. Under certain circumstance where the existing driveway under pre-existing conditions exceeds a 7% gradient, a best effort approach may be taken to match the pre-existing slope or improve upon the gradient by paving to or beyond the property line to achieve the maximum 7% gradient. This is however, reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  
The match points have been identified during detailed design and are part of the Contractor’s scope of work to complete. The limits beyond these match points are not considered part of the scope of this project and have not been budgeted for. The Town has been advised by the Contractor that they are not currently interested in entering into a private agreement with the Owner(s) to pave the remaining balance of the private driveway. In the event the Contractor decides to take on these sorts of requests the Town would remain responsible for only the costs associated for the driveway portion as set out in the design including warranty obligations for said portion. Any private agreements would be solely between the Contractor and Owner(s).  
Privately Owned Items
The Contractor will not be responsible for damages to any privately owned items on Town property. Property owners should remove items located within Town right-of-way such as landscaping and/or decorative objects. If you have a sprinkler system and/or septic bed located in close proximity to the Town property limits, please contact the Town Project Manager or Consultant Field Inspector identified within this Notice. 
Safety
Construction involves the use of heavy equipment and the unavoidable creation of obstacles. These circumstances are often attractive to children, and as such, we ask that you please caution your children to stay clear of the construction work zone. While the contractor is required to conduct the work in a safe manner, we ask that you please take extra caution during the construction period as an additional measure.
