The City of Ottawa’s stormwater infrastructure benefits all areas of the city – urban, suburban and rural. During major rainfalls and snow melts, ditches and culverts play major roles in diverting the runoff from fields, properties and roadways to creeks, streams and rivers.
In 2022, there will be approximately $18 million to support the renewal of drainage culverts crossing city roads across the city, with $10.2 million for renewing or replacing culverts in rural areas.
As part of the City of Ottawa’s annual infrastructure maintenance cycle, rural road culvert replacements will occur to improve drainage and roadways.
The Corkstown Road culvert will be replaced using open-cut construction. The culvert is located 1.4 km west of Moodie Drive and lane reductions will be required over a period of approximately two (2) weeks.
The culvert has reached the end of its service life and requires replacement. Work will involve replacement of the culvert beneath the roadway, and asphalt resurfacing.
Construction is planned to begin in August 2022 and completion is anticipated by late November 2022. The City of Ottawa has retained the contractor, Goldie Mohr Ltd., to complete the work.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require a disability-related accommodation, please contact the project team listed below. Accessible formats and communication supports are available, upon request, at the following link: www.ottawa.ca/accessibleformat
The affected roads will have information and construction signs installed and maintained throughout the construction sites for the duration of the work to keep you informed of the changing conditions. Expect some delays in your travel time over the course of the work. Significant effort is being made to reduce the duration of the construction impacts in your community. Access to local businesses and private properties will be maintained throughout the construction period. Access for pedestrians and cyclists will be maintained.
Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
The reconstruction is within the City’s right of way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. The City will reinstate sections of landscaping, driveways and walkways that are disturbed by construction; however, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right of way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you may want to move them in preparation for the construction work.
The Contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the construction work. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
For construction activity hours of work, the City of Ottawa follows provincial requirements and the City’s Noise By-law (2017-255).
