The Contract includes the following work:
New traffic signals to be installed on Cedarview at the intersection with
the Highway 416 Northbound on and off ramps, with activation date
scheduled for end of May 2021.
Underground electrical work and pole footings on the east side of the road across from the Highway 416 Northbound on and off ramps as well as milling, paving, line painting, and signage on Cedarview Road from West Hunt Club Road to 625m northerly.
Highway 416 Ramps at West Hunt Club Road
Asphalt repairs: milling, paving, line painting and signage on all five interchange ramps.
Shoulder, Lane, and Road Closures
To complete the work in a manner that is safe to the travelling public and site personnel, much of the construction will be completed within shoulder, lane, and full road closures that will be set-up in accordance with OTM Book 7. Highway 416 will be reduced to 80km/h when construction activities are being performed.
Additionally, there will be many nightly ramp closures at the Highway 416 / West Hunt Club
interchange to facilitate the electrical work, pole footing installation, milling, paving, line painting, and signage operations. It is anticipated that some of these closures will be in effect as early as mid-May 2021. It is estimated that the paving operation will take roughly three weeks to complete.
As the project progresses, these dates will be evaluated, and advanced notice of the closures will be provided to the affected agencies and emergency services.
If required, the following work will be completed at night (23:00 to 5:00):
Full closure of Cedarview Road from West Hunt Club Road to Bruin Road is permitted for a maximum of six (6) consecutive nights during which time the Highway 416 Northbound on and off ramps will also be closed to facilitate milling and paving operations.
The right-turn lane will be closed, for a maximum of 6 consecutive nights, during the full closure of Cedarview Road from West Hunt Club Road to Bruin Road to facilitate milling and paving operations.
