Construction work on Township Road 240, Range Road 282 and the new Kinniburgh Bridge is well underway for the season and the work is on track to be complete in September 2019.
The underground utilities are complete and earthworks can now begin on Range Road 282 and Kinniburgh Boulevard to prepare these areas for the road sub-base and paving.
The new Kinniburgh Bridge over the WID canal is also progressing quickly, the rebar installation is complete and the first concrete bridge deck pour is complete. Subsequent pours will be scheduled as the concrete cures and the weather cooperates.
Crews will now continue with deep utility installation of the water, sanitary and storm lines on Township Road 240. This will require a closure of Rainbow Road at the Township Road 240 intersection from June 10 – July 2, 2019. Detours are available using Garden Road or Highway 791.
Following this closure, construction in this intersection will be complete and no further traffic disruption is expected for this area.
The City thanks all affected residents for their continued patience while this work is completed.
Rainbow Road intersection closure schedule:
• June 10 – 23: installation of water, sanitary and stormwater utility lines
• June 23 – July 2: road sub-grade preparation, road base installation and paving.
The remaining work to be completed this summer includes:
• Finishing the new Kinniburgh bridge
• Earthworks and grading of the roads and storm ponds
• Road sub-base preparation, base installation and paving.
