March 22nd Update

On Tuesday, March 26th, work will begin on the Downtown Enhancement Project. You will see an increase of trucks coming into the Downtown, specifically on Frontier Street North to drop off materials at the Staging Site, located next to the Barn parking lot.

Locating work will also begin this day. This work needs to be undertaken to locate all of our existing infrastructure. The work entails excavating a hole in the road. This work will begin on Tuesday on Frontier Street and will continue around the block clockwise (ie. Aster Street, Prospect Street, then Birch Street). Traffic and parking disruptions should be minimal for the locating work, however there will likely be alternating traffic, potential detours and restricted parking in some areas . The locating work is anticipated to be completed by Friday, March 29th.

We appreciate your patience!

March 29th Update

The Downtown Enhancement Project is now underway!

This week, the contractors finished up with their locating work, which helped them determine where our existing infrastructure is found under the surface. Next week, we can expect lots of construction activity in front of the Downtown Community Barn as they prepare the area for the installation of the rainwater storage cisterns.

Please be sure to take caution in this area, and follow the direction of the traffic control personnel.

April 5th Update

This week was certainly a busy one, and the downtown enhancement project is well underway!

Below is the summary of work that was completed this week and what to expect next week:

Completed this week:

  • Deliveries of cisterns (for storing rainwater for irrigation), shoring, manholes and other infrastructure
  • Install of shoring and excavation of area in front of barn to accommodate the cistern install
  • Trenching and installation of stormwater pipe along Frontier Street South

Coming up next week:

  • Trenching and installation of stormwater pipe on Aster Street (this will begin today and go throughout the weekend).
  • Trenching and installation of stormwater pipe Prospect Street (this will commence once Aster Street is complete). Please note, parking on the house side (west side) of Prospect will be impacted as they work their way down the street. However, parking will be restricted only in the sections they are working on and not the entire street at once. Trenching on Prospect Street is anticipated to be completed within 3 days, however, this is weather dependent as we are due for a strong wet system hitting Pemberton as of tomorrow.
  • Trenching and installation of storm/water infrastructure is estimated to begin in John Currie Lane on April 13th or 14th if the weather cooperates.
  • Continued excavation and shoring work in barn area.
  • Installation of the deep irrigation wet well in the barn area.

Week of April 15th:

  • Trenching and installation of storm/water infrastructure on Birch Street. There will be parking impacts on one side of the street. More information on this to come.
