LED Streetlight Conversion Project
In late 2018, Loyalist Township converted existing cobra head style, high-pressure sodium (HPS) light fixtures to light emitting diode (LED) fixtures. RealTerm Energy was the project manager for this project and Cree Canada the manufacturer of the selected lamps. The contractor changing the fixtures was A-Line Utility. More information is available on the project's page.
McIntyre Road Reconstruction & Fred Brown Road Resurfacing
In 2018 McIntyre Road underwent reconstruction between County Road 7 and County Road 4, including full depth excavation and placement of granulars, culvert replacement and ditching, double surface treatment, and restoration of all disturbed areas. Fred Brown Road was resurfaced between County Road 4 and Thorpe Road, which also included select culvert replacement and select ditching, double surface treatment, and restoration. These roads were tendered as a single project, which was awarded to Morven Construction.
2018 Watermain Relining Program
Two streets in Amherstview benefited from the structural relining of watermains in 2018: Cambridge Crescent, and the eastern leg of Kildare Avenue between Manitou Crescent West and Cambridge Crescent. Structural relining can extend the life of an existing watermain by several decades, and results in less excavation and subsequent disturbance than a full watermain replacement project. 2018's watermain relining program was the second year of a multi-year contract awarded to Fer-Pal Infrastructure.
Wilton Park Playground
Loyalist Township partnered with the Wilton Community Association to make improvements to the Wilton Park Playground, including a new play structure, drainage improvements and an accessible pathway. The project was tendered in the spring of 2018 and was awarded to Kiley Paving. The grand reopening of the park and unveiling of the new equipment took place on July 2, 2018.
Amherstview Water Tower Lining
In the spring of 2018, the Amherstview water tower was temporarily closed down to undertake the relining of the tank's interior. The relining work was necessary to preserve the integrity of the tower. C3 Industrial was awarded the project through a Request for Proposals process. Throughout the entirety of the tower shutdown, a total ban on the outdoor use of municipally-treated water was in place throughout Amherstview, including the Brooklands and Harewood subdivisions (municipal water customers in Odessa and Bath were not affected by this work).
Morden Crescent Reconstruction
Morden Crescent in Amherstview underwent replacement of watermains, sanitary sewers and laterals, culverts, new asphalt, and restoration of all disturbed surfaces.
The project was tendered in June 2017, with Amos Excavation being awarded the contract. The project was suspended during the winter of 2017-2018, and in 2018, the completion contract was awarded to Dig'n Dirt Ltd. This project was made possible in part due to funding from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund.
Davy Street Bath Reconstruction
Davy Street in Bath underwent rehabilitation in 2017. The project area was bounded by Queen Street at the north, and Lake Ontario at the south. The work consisted of the full removal and replacement of asphalt, new stormwater infrastructure, installation of curb and gutter; as well as new watermain south of Main Street. This project was funded partly by the Government of Canada's Clean Water & Wastewater Fund and by the Province of Ontario's Connecting Links program.
Amherstview Watermain Lining Project 2017
Three streets in Amherstview benefited from the structural relining of watermains in the fall of 2017: Fairfield Boulevard, Sherwood Avenue, and Clairton Place. Structural relining can extend the life of an existing watermain by several decades; and results in less excavation and subsequent disturbance than a full watermain replacement project. Funding for Fairfield Boulevard and Sherwood Avenue was provided in part by the Province of Ontario's Community Infrastructure Fund. Funding for Clairton Place was provided in part by the Government of Canada's Clean Water & Wastewater Fund.
Frink Avenue Reconstruction
Frink Avenue in Amherstview was upgraded in 2017 with side ditch improvements and culvert replacements, new storm sewers and watermains, new asphalt, and restoration of all disturbed surfaces. The Frink Avenue reconstruction was funded in part by the Government of Canada's Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.
Lakeview Park Playground Rehabilitation
The Lakeview Park Playground was rehabilitated in 2017. This project was funded in part by the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.
Fralick Road Reconstruction
Fralick Road is a 1.7 km surface treated (chip and tar) road running from County Road 2 south to Withers Road. 2017's reconstruction consisted of removal of the existing surface, excavation of the road base to improve stabilization, replace culverts, and application of double surface treatment. This project was funded in part by federal gas tax funding.
Fairfield Boulevard Watermain Construction
In 2017 Fairfield Boulevard, Amherstview, watermain was reconstructed from the Highway 33 (Bath Road) intersection north to Loyalist Avenue. The project generally consisted of replacing underground water main, repaving, and replacing sidewalks. This project was made possible in part due to funding from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund.
