West 12th Avenue sewer and road construction

During post-construction inspection, sections of settled sewer were discovered. In order to achieve the expected service life of the sewer asset and to minimize future maintenance requirements, City crews will be repairing a few short sections in West 12th Avenue east of Carnarvon Street, and a longer section in West 12th Avenue west of Carnarvon Street.

Impacts to traffic, parking and residents

The underground work is complete and permanent street restoration has been scheduled to begin in January 2014. During construction, traffic on West 12th Avenue will be reduced or closed off.

Residents access will be maintained at all times.

Street parking may be affected by the presence of work trailers and construction equipment. Temporary parking restrictions will be removed as soon as they no longer needed.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the street space, please do not hesitate to approach the city crews. The crews will do their best to accomodate the parking and deliveries.
