North Bay, ON – May 19, 2022 – Installation of a new 400-millimeter watermain on Judge Avenue will get underway Tuesday, May 24.
The work will initially involve open trench excavation and will be followed by horizontal directional drilling.
Open excavation will begin at Veterans Park and will continue in stages to Leask Avenue. Access to sports fields and washroom facilities at Veterans Park will be maintained.
Horizontal directional drilling, which will begin at a later date, will be conducted beneath the Judge Avenue, Lakeshore Drive and Memorial Drive area in order to allow that intersection to remain open to traffic. Additional notices will be issued for future road closures, which will be necessary throughout the project.
The work is expected take approximately 10 weeks to complete. Once installed, the new watermain will alleviate ongoing water pressure issues and serve as a second large-diameter feed to deliver drinking water to the West Ferris area.
The City of North Bay thanks residents for their patience while this infrastructure project is completed.
