Construction along a busy Burlington street beginning this month comes with a warning.

The project, carried out by Halton Region, is expected to cause some traffic delays, more noise than usual, and enough vibrations that nearby residents are being told to secure objects on shelves and walls.

The work will be carried out on Brant St. near the Mount Forest intersection and is expected to last the rest of this year.

The project will see the installation of a new underground water system.

Halton has compiled a list of what nearby residents and motorists may face in the months ahead:

  • Traffic delays: The work may cause traffic delays, lane shifts or lane restrictions. Halton says every effort to minimize any potential inconvenience. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times.
  • Dust and mud: There may be increased levels of dust and mud near the work site. The contractor is required to manage these impacts.
  • Night work: Night work may be required as part of this project. Advance notice will be given of any change in work hours.
  • Noise: Residents may experience noise as a result of the work. Work will be carried out in accordance with local noise bylaws.
  • Vibration: You may experience some vibration due to ongoing work. As a precaution, we recommend that you remove or secure objects on shelves and walls.
  • Water and wastewater disruptions: 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.
  • Driveway access: Direct access to your driveway may be restricted for short periods of time. We will provide advance notice of any planned restrictions.

The contractor for this project is World Quality Construction Inc. with project administration by R.J. Burnside & Associated Limited.
