Watermain Replacement and Improvements Williams Parkway
Construction work starting in your area - Projects 20-1340 D & 17-1340 B
The Region of Peel will be working in your area to replace existing watermains on Williams Parkway over the next year as shown on the attached map. Watermains are underground pipes that bring tap water from our water treatment plants to your neighbourhood. As the existing pipes age and our population grows, we need to replace and upsize older watermains in order to keep providing you with high quality water.
This upcoming construction will take place within the municipal right-of-way on Williams Parkway (i.e. within the boulevards and roads owned and maintained by the City). This work may impact the flow of traffic during working hours and temporarily disrupt the use of some pedestrian walkways and/or sidewalks.
Construction for the first phase of the assignment (20-1340 D) is expected to begin in early 2023 and be completed by Summer 2023. This includes the easterly section of the project area between Kennedy Road and Dixie Road. The second phase of the assignment (17-1340 B) is expected to commence in Spring 2023 and be completed by Fall 2023. This includes the westerly section between Main Street and Kennedy Road.
A subsequent notice is planned to be distributed in Spring 2023 to provide an update on the timelines noted above including more information about the second phase of the assignment.
Contractor and working hours
The work for the first phase of the assignment (20-1340 D) will be completed by Earth Boring Company Ltd. and supported by EXP Services Inc., both under contract to the Region of Peel.
Normal working hours will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday. These hours are consistent with the City of Brampton’s construction and noise bylaws. On some occasions, night work may be required to complete certain sections of the watermain installation. We understand this may cause some inconvenience but completing these sections at night would greatly reduce overall traffic impacts, were they to be completed during the day.
Interrupting your water supply
Water interruptions are not expected as part of this assignment; however, if a temporary shutdown is required, it is our goal to let you know 48 hours (2 days) in advance.
Upon the completion of the Region of Peel's work, the City of Brampton is planning to complete roadwork and boulevard improvements on Williams Parkway beginning in Fall 2023*. As such, we will:
- Pave only the areas of the road directly disturbed by watermain construction; and
- Restore damaged sidewalks and curbs using temporary asphalt.
*The City of Brampton will send you a separate notice about this additional construction closer to the commencement date.
Safety during construction
Construction zones require extra caution to keep everyone safe – pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and construction workers. When driving, walking, or biking through the construction area, please be aware of your surroundings, watch for construction crews and other road users, slow down, account for delays, and consider other routes if possible. To learn more about how to stay safe in construction zones, visit peelregion.ca/workzonesafety
A large portion of the watermain installation will be completed via horizontal direction drilling (HDD). This trenchless installation methodology will be utilized as a means to reduce overall traffic impacts and complete the works in a shorter amount of time. As a result, you may feel slight vibrations while the tunneling work is being performed.
Keeping you informed
We will let you know if there are any major changes to the plans.
