2022 Projects

Sanitary and Storm Sewer Flushing and Inspection Project

The 2022 Sanitary and Storm Sewer Flushing and Inspection project has been awarded to Braywood Services Inc. and will begin June 27th and continue all through the year ending December 23rd and taking place at various locations throughout the Town. The purpose of this project is twofold: first to carry out maintenance by flushing the sewers clear of debris and removing obstructions to prepare for inspection. Secondly to carry out pipeline, service lateral and manhole inspections to determine the structural and operational condition of the assets, in support of capital and maintenance planning and service delivery.

 

As part of this project, the contractor will also be completing sanitary service lateral and manhole inspections in 3 different study areas to support an Inflow and Infiltration Investigation, as shown on the map below.

Map of Project Areas

Residents will notice contractor vehicles in these areas for an extended period of time while they complete the asset inspections. In total the Town will be cleaning and inspecting 52,000m of sewer main, 229 manholes and 1,111 service laterals. The contractor will ensure 1 lane of traffic remains open at all times and driveway access will not be impeded.

Town of Grimsby In-Road Flexible Signage Pilot Program - (ongoing)

The Town of Grimsby, in our continuing effort to improve traffic safety on Town roads, will be commencing with a road safety pilot program to test new traffic calming techniques at various locations. The project has been titled the “In Road Flexible Signage Pilot Program”, and will feature the installation of flexible road signs and bollards to create a lane narrowing effect along the selected midblock locations. Each location will have, at minimum, (1) one centerline double-side flexible sign, and (2) two white lane delineators. Please note that two-way traffic operation will be maintained. In areas where on-street parking is present, parking near these devices will be prohibited for the duration of the program.

The project is now underway and will be in effect until late fall before winter maintenance is set to begin. Town staff will be collecting traffic data, along with information from Grimsby residents throughout the duration of the pilot, to adequately assess the efficacy of the devices installed. Staff will be creating additional awareness and information regarding the program through this project page, social media and an online survey to provide the opportunity for residents to submit feedback to Town staff.

Provided in the links below, please see the Council report regarding this program for more detailed information, as well as a map outlining the areas on the Grimsby road network that have been chosen for this pilot.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the program, you can contact Michael Palomba, Transportation Engineering Technologist, in the Public Works Department by phone at  905-945-9634 or by email, mpalomba@grimsby.ca
