Beeton Creek bridge removal, pipeline relocation to start next month

Posted June 7, 2019

Avertex Utility Solutions Inc. will be awarded an $878,372 contract to remove the Beeton Creek bridge, and relocate via underwater passage, the sewage pipeline attached to it.

The project is one of three planned infrastructure improvements to secure and upsize the water and wastewater pipelines installed along bridges between Alliston and Beeton, that have outlived their life cycle.

Originally the pipeline was to be 300 mm, but enlarged to 400mm but "in order to reduce future capital costs associated with increases in the Lilly Street Pump Station capacity to service future growth," according to the tender report to council. "This approach would defer or eliminate the need to twin/replace the forcemain in the future. RVA undertook a review of the design requirements and confirmed the increase in pipe size would not adversely impact the Lilly Street PS pump capacity requirements."

Crossing under watercourses will be done by horizontal directional drilling.

As a result, a section of the Trans Canada Trail between the 9th and 10th Line is scheduled to be closed between July 2 to Sept. 31.

"Staff will provide advance notice to the public that this section of the Trail will be temporarily closed during construction activities. Signage of 'Trail Closed' will be erected at each end of the closure limits for the duration of the closure."
