Maple Grove to be closed July 10-21

via Councillor Shad Qadri:

I would like to advise residents that from July 10-21st, Maple Grove Road will be closed from Silver Seven to Huntmar due to continuing Forcemain and Pump Station work.

During this time, I encourage residents to plan their routes in advance and use the image below as reference for recommended detour.


Heads up: Early morning construction work on Maple Grove…

(via Councillor Qadri)

The project contractor working on the Kanata West Pump station has been granted a noise by-law exemption from the City for the use of construction equipment. The request is to start work early on July 27th (5am rather than 7am). The work being conducted is for concrete placement.  This will involve approximately four concrete trucks and a concrete pumping unit, both only making normal truck engine noise.  It is over 500m to the nearest home on Helm. The early start will enable workers to pour the concrete in order to beat the summer/warm temperatures.

Parking, Traffic and Transit

Maple Grove Road to close until early September for…

Maple Grove Road will be closed to traffic between Terry Fox Drive and Silver Seven Road beginning Wednesday, July 20. The closure will allow for the installation of sewer pipes related to construction of the Kanata West Pump Station on Maple Grove Road. The closure will remain in effect until early September.

Work will take place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., extending to 10 p.m. as required. No overnight work is planned. A signed detour will be in place throughout the construction period. Motorists and cyclists are advised to follow all signage directed at them. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the construction period.

There are no anticipated effects to OC Transpo routes.

Walter Baker Park and nearby businesses will remain open as usual and access will be maintained.
