Project 4 Description (GWP 3042-11-00 and GWP 3054-16-00)

The Project includes 25 culvert sites that have been organized into two contracts as follows due to significant geographic dispersal of the sites:

GWP 3042-11-00

  • Highway 6: Sites 2-448/C, 8-342/C, and 8-623/C
  • Highway 9: Sites 2-463/C, 2-255/C, and 35-594/C
  • Highway 10: Site 4-21/C
  • Highway 21: Sites 12-432/C, 12-433/C, 12-434/C, and 12-435/C
  • Highway 23: Sites 25-334/C, 25-335/C, 25-336/C, 25-339/C, 25-340/C, 25-341/C, 25-342/C, 25 343/C, 25-344/C
  • Highway 89: 35-508/C, 35-509/C, and 4-320/C

GWP 3054-16-00

  • Highway 3: Sites 5-99/C and 9-161/C

The proposed improvements include:

  • Minor rehabilitation of 16 culverts including Sites 5-99/C, 25-334/C, 25-335/C, 25-336/C, 25 339/C, 25-341/C, 25-342/C, 25-343/C, 35-508/C, 35-509/C, 4-21/C, 12-432/C, 12-433/C, 12 434/C, 12-435/C, and 2-255/C
  • Major rehabilitation of the culvert at Site 8-342/C
  • Replacement of eight culverts including Sites 2-448/C, 2-463/C, 4-320/C, 25-340/C, 25-344/C, 35-594/C, 9 161/C, and 8-623/C

Improvements are tentatively scheduled to begin for both GWP 3042-11-00 and GWP 3054-16-00 in 2017, subject to funding and approvals. The proposed work at all culvert sites included in GWP 3042 11 00 will be completed in three construction seasons (i.e., June to November 2017, April to November 2018, and April to November 2019). The proposed work at all culvert sites included in GWP 3054-16-00 will be completed in one construction season (i.e., June to November 2017). Construction will be undertaken concurrently, with the order of sites depending on the contractor’s scheduling and regulatory restrictions (i.e., in-water construction timing windows).

The following outlines construction staging and traffic impacts at the sites.

Culvert Replacements at Sites 2-448/C, 2-463/C, 4-320/C, 25-340/C, 25-344/C, 35-594/C, 9-161/C, and 8-623/C:

  • Replacements at all sites, with the exception of Sites 4-320/C, 9-161/C, and 8-623/C, will be undertaken in two stages utilizing temporary traffic signals to control a single lane of alternating one-way traffic during one construction season
  • During the replacement of the culverts at Sites 4-320/C, 9-161/C, and 8-623/C, continuous flagging of Highway 89 and 7th Line, Highway 3, and Highway 6, respectively, will be utilized for one week, and shall commence on a Monday of a non-holiday weekend in order to be completed by Friday
  • Two entrances will be relocated at Site 25-344/C and one entrance will be relocated at Site 25 340/C to provide additional clearance for construction
  • Access to and from private entrances in the vicinity of Sites 2-463/C, 23-340/C, and 35-594/C will be maintained utilizing temporary traffic signals
  • Temporary daytime shoulder closures will be utilized at all sites as required

Minor Rehabilitation at 16 culvert sites and Major Rehabilitation at Site 8-342/C:

  • Single-lane staging with flagging operations will be required for waterproofing and trench restoration at Sites 12-432/C, 12-433/C, 12-434/C, 12-435/C, 25-334/C, 25-335/C, 25-336/C, 25 339/C, 25-341/C, 25-343/C, 35-509/C, and 8-342/C, for approximately 24 hours per stage, and shall commence on a Monday of a non-holiday weekend in order to be complete before Friday
  • Temporary daytime lane closures with flagging will be utilized at all sites as required

Night-time Construction

At 15 culvert sites, the construction duration will be shortened to minimize traffic impacts by undertaking night-time operations including culvert waterproofing, excavation, and backfilling. This includes Sites 12-432/C, 12-433/C, 12-434/C, 12-435/C, 4-320/C, 4-21/C, 25-334/C, 25-335/C, 25 336/C, 25-339/C, 25-341/C, 25-343/C, 8-342/C, and 8-623/C in GWP 3042-11-00 and Site 9 161/C in GWP 3054-16-00. Noise by-law exemptions have been obtained from the Township of Melancthon and Municipality of West Perth to permit 24-hour continuous construction and associated single-lane staging with continuous flagging to a maximum of four nights per site. The Contractor will be required to notify property owners within 200 m of the affected sites two weeks in advance of construction. Noise by-law exemption applications are currently submitted and are expected to be secured with the Municipality of North Perth, Township of Chatsworth, Haldimand County, and Municipality of West Grey.
