BROCKTON – The George Street reconstruction project on the east side of Walkerton between Durham Street and Orange Street is well underway. It was one of the highlights in the 2021 budget.
The eight-week, $910,000 project started in June and will continue until September.
The work involves full road reconstruction and installation of curbs and gutters, sidewalk construction on one side, replacement of the watermain and services, replacement of the sanitary sewer and services, and installation of new storm sewers. There are no planned service disruptions to hydro, cable or communications.
During construction, no on-street or boulevard parking is permitted in the construction zone. It will be permitted on adjacent streets. George Street is closed to through traffic. Local access will be provided, but may be restricted at certain times.
