Below is a list of Construction Projects for the 2021 Year. 

 CURRENT CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

Quinte West has a lot planned for the 2021 construction season. Here are some of the most recent developments for upcoming projects:

King St. - After a successful reconstruction of part of King St. last year, we are excited to move forward with the next phase of construction. Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021, Cobourg Development Services will begin posting signs and delivering notices to residents who will be affected by the re-construction. A temporary water line will also be installed. This phase will tackle King St. from 4th Ave. - Catherine St. Excavation work will begin Monday, May 10, 2021.

McGill St. - Beginning Monday, May 3, 2021, Cobourg Development Services will begin posting signs and delivering notices to residents who will be affected by the re-construction. A temporary water line will also be installed. This project will affect the section of McGill St. from Dufferin Ave. to Creswell Dr. *As part of this project, re-construction will also take place on Lorne Ave. from McGill St. to Creswell Dr.

 2021 Watermain & Sanitary Replacement & Road Reconstruction

2021 Rural Surface Treatment

The City of Quinte West has many roads that have a ‘tar and chip’ surface treatment. This method of surface treatment is also known as ‘chip seal’ and it is used on rural roads with low to medium volumes of traffic as a more cost-effective and durable alternative to asphalt paving. Tar and chip roads get resurfaced approximately every 7-10 years.

During and after the work has been completed, you can expect to see a greater than normal amount of dust. The contractor will begin by pulverizing the road. A layer of hot asphalt will be applied, followed by an even layer of angular aggregate stones, which are rolled into place. These stones are further pushed into the asphalt tar by traffic on the road.

Once the work has been completed, we ask that you not sweep the street when the chip is still loose. Residents are also asked to reduce their speed when driving. This will help to minimize the disturbance of the stones to ensure a clean even surface and minimize dust.
