Lockhart Road Reconstruction and Servicing

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town of Innisfil is working to improve Lockhart Road. We identified the need for this project in our 2018 Transportation Master Plan. Road and infrastructure improvement projects like this one are essential for keeping our community safe and connected.

The project's first phase involved reconstruction on Lockhart Road from 20th Sideroad to 25th Sideroad. That phase is now substantially complete. The project has now entered the second phase, which involves reconstructing Lockhart Road from 25th Sideroad to Lake Simcoe.

Phase 2 Project Features

The proposed roadway improvements include:

  • Expansion of the Lockhart Road and 25th Sideroad intersection, including the addition of traffic lights
  • Watermain installation from 25th Sideroad to the west leg of Crescent Road
  • Road reconstruction of Lockhart Road from 25th Sideroad to the lake, including the addition of active transportation lanes
  • The creation of a parkette at the lake
  • Utility relocations
  • Drainage improvements

Timeline

We expect the construction to begin in the Spring of 2023, and the work will take 2 to 3 years. The town is still working to confirm construction timelines, but we expect it to progress as follows:

  • Utility Relocations – Fall 2022
  • Watermain Installation & Start of Road Reconstruction – Spring 2023
  • Continuation Road Reconstruction and Drainage Improvements – 2024
  • Parkette creation – 2024
  • Intersection expansion and signalization – 2023 or 2024

    The Lockhart Road Reconstruction and Servicing Project, a partnership between the Town of Innisfil, InnServices and Parkbridge, will resume in May 2021 with road reconstruction from approximately Sandy Cove Acres to 750m to the west, terminating at the Power Station. Minor works will be completed at the road crossing culverts as well as any remaining works to be completed as part of the project. Binder course of asphalt will be placed from approximately Sandy Cove Acres to the Power Station to match into the asphalt placed in 2019 and 2020. The surface course of asphalt will be placed on the roadway from 20th Sideroad to 25th Sideroad in the Summer of 2021.

    Vibration monitoring will be in place to ensure vibration of the construction and heavy equipment meets appropriate standards. This vibration monitoring equipment will be located at the limits of the Town's right of way and front property line limits and will be moved with the construction crew during construction.

    Traffic disruptions may occur during construction. Driveway access will be maintained throughout the construction, except for temporary disturbances during culvert replacement and restoration. Please refrain from parking your car on the road during construction hours. For temporary driveway disturbances, the contractor will advise where to park. One lane will remain open at all times, or detours will be set up as required, with detour routes being signed.

    Work will be Monday - Friday from 7:00am to 8:00pm with occasional work on Saturdays. Due to the nature of construction, loud noise and dust could occur during daytime hours.

    Residents are reminded that Covid-19 protocol will be in place and to maintain a safe distance from the construction zone.

    Well water levels and supply

    Shallow groundwater levels in close proximity of the Lockhart Road construction zone may be lowered as a result of dewatering to install sewer and water mains. Lowering of the groundwater table will be temporary and once the underground services are installed groundwater levels in affected wells will recover.

    A water well survey has recently been conducted at properties in the area, and offsite water level monitoring and contingency planning has been enacted in the event of a loss of water supply. The response plan below outlines the planned approach to address well complaints, including consideration of concerns related to COVID-19.

    Should you experience a loss of water supply an ANSWERING MACHINE HOTLINE has been established. The number is 705-722-4468.

    Before you call, please have the following information ready:

    • Your name
    • Your address
    • Your phone number

    Please speak clearly and slowly when you call

    Calling this HOTLINE will automatically generate voice mail messages to the Contingency Response Team. A member of the Team will investigate the complaint within 24 hours.

    Water Supply Issue Follow-up

    The following procedure will be followed to address water supply concerns:

    ·Residents will be contacted via telephone or email within 24 hours following receipt of a complaint to confirm the details and arrange for an in-person follow-up visit.

    ·Field staff will visit the property at the agreed upon time. Staff will inspect the well, and if possible will collect water level measurements. In an effort to comply with provincial guidelines regarding personal interactions under COVID-19, it is requested that residents remain within their home during the inspection process. If necessary, staff will communicate with the property owner following social distancing protocols (e.g., minimum 2 m separation).

    ·All inspection and measurement activities will be conducted using disinfected equipment, and staff will be wearing disposable nitrile gloves.

    ·If necessary, water quality samples would be collected from an external water supply (i.e. outside tap) using standard sampling protocols.

    ·If the issue involves a loss of water, bottled water will be provided for immediate use. The water will be delivered to the property by project staff, and will be left for pickup by the property owner.

    ·If it is determined that a longer-term water supply is required, project staff will follow up with the resident to coordinate delivery and installation of equipment.
