Overnight Traffic at Old Bloomington and Bloomington Roads

Construction Update

The Regional Municipality of York is making improvements to our wastewater system. Work is occurring through the Town of Newmarket for the York Durham Sanitary Sewage Forcemain Twinning Project. 

The project includes construction of a new forcemain parallel to an existing forcemain. This is known as forcemain twinning. The work will improve the reliability of the sewage system and allows for future maintenance on the existing forcemain.

There will be overnight work occurring at the corner of Bloomington Road and Old Bloomington Road on June 3, 2020 as part of the construction of the York Durham Sanitary Sewer Forcemain Twinning Project. The work needs to be done during the overnight hours when flows in the pipes are low. During the overnight work, there will an increase in truck traffic on Bloomington Road. Two to three more shutdowns will be required and advanced notification will be provided.

When: June 3, 2020 from 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m.

Where: The manhole shown in the figure between Old Bloomington Road and Bloomington Road

What can you expect?

  • Access to all homes and buildings will be maintained
  • Increased truck traffic in the area
  • Some construction related noise from trucks, though every effort to minimize noise will be made
  • Traffic flow will be maintained
  • Staff will be on site to assist with the movement of local traffic, as required

We understand overnight work can be disruptive to those who live near the area, and we have taken steps to reduce the impacts where possible. Thank you for your patience while we complete this vital work.
