Expect delays, disruption on this quiet residential street in Milton


Published July 7, 2023 at 1:15 pm

Residents and drivers in Milton on Maple Ave., from west of Thompson Rd. to Woodward Ave., should expect delays and construction over the next several months.

Halton Region has begun replacing the watermain on Maple Ave and the project is expected to last until December.

The work is required to maintain the Region’s infrastructure in a state of good repair and ensure the continued delivery of water services. Improvements will include watermain replacement and new fire hydrants.

Here are several things local residents and drivers should know about the project:

  • Direct access to your driveway may be restricted for short periods of time. Advance notice of any planned restrictions will be provided.
  • There may be increased levels of dust and mud near the work site. The contractor is required to manage these impacts.
  • If you have a lawn irrigation system within the public road allowance, please locate, disconnect and remove any sprinkler heads prior to the construction work commencing.
  • No changes or delays to mail delivery are anticipated.
  • You may experience noise as a result of Regional improvements. Work will be scheduled in accordance with local noise by-laws.
  • If your driveway will be impacted by this work, the contractor will inform you in advance of the driveway restoration work to allow the vehicles to be removed from the driveway or out of the garage as required. The section of your driveway that is impacted will be restored.
  • If your lawn or landscaping has been impacted by this work, new sod will be placed. You may experience temporary periods of lower water pressure during the installation of the new watermain. Your regular pressure will be restored once the new watermain is installed.
  • This work may cause traffic delays, lane shifts or lane restrictions.
  • Your garbage and recycling will continue to be picked up on your regular scheduled collection day. The contractor is responsible for moving your garbage and recycling to a location where our collection vehicles can pick them up. Please mark your house number on containers or bins to help with identification.
  • There may be some disruption to your water services during the course of the project. Halton Region will provide at least 48 hours advance written notice of any scheduled shutdowns or disruptions.
