Crews clearing way for next phase of Cty Rd 50 reconstruction

Posted April 23, 2014

Site preparation is underway for Phase 7 of Simcoe County's multi-phased improvements to Cty Rd 50 south of Loretto with the tree clearing and fencing contract to be completed by June 20. That makes way for the utility relocation which is expected to take until December to complete.

"There should be minimal traffic impacts as result...  other than the occasional short duration temporary single lane closures," according to Chris Doherty, Engineering Technician, County of Simcoe.

The actual construction, which will disrupt traffic flow for several months, will not begin until spring 2015. It will cover 2.0 km south of 10 Sideroad to approximately 1.0 km north of Simcoe County Road 14. Mr. It will include "full road reconstruction, widening of the existing road platform including addition of auxiliary left and right turning lanes at intersections, intersection illumination, large culvert replacements and vertical grade corrections as per current engineering design standards."

Phase 6, approximately 1.0 km north of 5 Sideroad to 1.2 km south of 5 Sideroad, which started in 2013, should be completed this summer. Remaining tasks include finished grading, seeding and sodding of the ditches, final guiderail installation, driveway restoration, adjustments of catchbasins and manholes, top course asphalt paving and line painting.
