Background 

The Beeton OPA31 Master Servicing Plan (MSP) adopted by Council in December 2010 identifies various recommendations for servicing solutions including stormwater management, water, wastewater, traffic and electrical distribution in support of development growth.

 Dayfoot Street was identified in the MSP to be reconstruction to an urbanized cross-section, including water and wastewater upgrades, from Main Street to Lilly Street.

 The primary scope of work for this project consists of upsizing the underground infrastructure (ie. watermain & sanitary sewers) along with urbanizing the road (new storm sewer, adding curb, sidewalk, bike lanes etc) in keeping with recommendations from various Town Studies such as the Beeton Master Servicing Plan, DC Background Study, Water Distribution and Storage Master Plan and the Multi Modal Active Transportation Master Plan.

The Dayfoot Street Urbanization is a growth-related project being funded primarily by Development Charges.
R.J. Burnside and Associates has been retained by the Town to undertake the design of the Dayfoot Street Urbanization project.

 Virtual Public Open House

The Town of New Tecumseth hosted a Virtual Public Open House (VPOH) for the reconstruction and urbanization work along Dayfoot Street and English Drive between Dayfoot St and Centre St in Beeton. The VPOH allowed all interested parties an opportunity to view the project information as well as to provide a platform for the project team to solicit comments from the public.

The VPOH took place from Monday, February 28 to Monday, March 14, 2022.

The VPOH presentation slides, and additional project information can be found below under Project Materials and Detail Design Drawings.

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 including structures within 50m of the Town’s right-of-way limits. 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 Wristen’s Home Specialties Inc. (WHS) will be circulated to schedule these surveys with affected residents. Participation is on a voluntarily basis, however recommended as we note that it is important measure to determine if any losses are caused by the construction activities.

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 property limits, 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 Liaison 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 Works in a safe manner, we ask that you please take extra caution during the construction period as an additional measure.
