The objective of this project is to replace deteriorated infrastructure along Sykes Street North from Lombard Street to Collingwood Street, and rebuild the road in accordance with Municipal standards.

 Project Description
Residents and business owners in Meaford and the surrounding area are advised the Municipality of Meaford is proceeding with design work in support of the Sykes Street North Reconstruction, between Lombard Street and Collingwood Street. The project will include the following works:
  • reconstruction of approximately 250 metres of road
  • replacement of concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk
  • improvements to the sanitary and storm sewer systems
  • improvements to the watermain system
  • full reinstatement of all areas disturbed during construction (driveways, boulevards, etc.)
 Construction Update for August 2021

Current Construction Activities

  • Watermain and water services have been installed
  • Work on the storm sewers will begin the week of August 16 - 20th, between Lombard Street and Parker Street

 

Full Road Closure

Please be advised that Sykes Street North is closed to traffic in both directions from Lombard Street to Collingwood Street. The full closure will remain in effect until further notice as construction work continues.

The closure for all lanes of traffic is a planned part of the reconstruction project. Detour routes are in place for vehicular traffic.

 

Sidewalks

Pedestrian access will continue to be provided through the construction zone. Please use caution when walking through the construction area or detouring around the project site. 

Currently, there is pedestrian access on the east side of the street between Lombard and Parker and pedestrian access on the west side of the street between Parker and Collingwood. 

 

Orange Traffic Cones placed on Bayfield Street

Orange traffic cones have been placed on Bayfield Street as a traffic calming measure and to help guide traffic through the detour. 

 

Access to Residents and Businesses

Businesses are open and can be accessed. Access to all business and residential properties will be accessible throughout the duration of the reconstruction.

 Home/Business Impacts

Maintaining access to homes and businesses is of the utmost importance to the Municipality. Provisions will be made throughout construction to ensure access to all homes is a priority and uninterrupted to the extent possible. Service disruptions will be minimized. 

Access for emergency vehicles and communication with the local authorities (fire, police, ambulance, school board, etc.) will be maintained throughout construction.

Homeowners should remove private landscape features within the right-of-way prior to construction. Homeowners are also encouraged to notify Tatham Engineering Limited and/or the Municipality of any sump pump or downspout discharge pipes, subdrains, sprinklers, underground dog fences, etc. that may be located within the right-of-way and/or may be disturbed during construction.
