Next construction detour: Queen Street East?

St. Marys Journal Argus

By Stew Slater, Staff reporter

With lane closures for traffic detours already in effect on Emily Street and Highway 7, St. Marys-area drivers could soon also be facing delays as they travel along Queen Street East.

At the Committee of the Whole meeting last night (Tuesday, Aug. 21), Town Councillors were presented with the results of a tendering process for a planned watermain replacement and repaving of St. Marys’ main thoroughfare, between Charles and St. George Streets.

The recommended low bid, from Tri-Con Excavating in London, came in at $417,090, plus HST. “The proposed work was included in the 2012 Public Works Capital Budget,” which had a total allocation of $620,000, explained a report from administrative staff for last night’s meeting. “The tender as submitted is within the funding allocated for this scope of work.”

The project covers 440 metres of roadway. And the report described the project as watermain replacement as well as “partial reconstruction and resurfacing of Queen Street East.”

St. George intersects with Queen Street immediately east of the CNR railway overpass; Charles Street intersects with Queen Street between Action Health Care and the former Staffen’s grocery store.
