The City of Sudbury has kicked off the new construction season highlighting projects planned.
Engineering services director David Shelsted presented the 2023 capital projects update to the city’s operations committee on May 15, highlighting “innovative construction techniques” used by contractors on projects completed in 2022.
“One example is on Elm Street this year where we lined the watermain, rather than replacing it,” Shelsted said. “We were able to do the vast majority of the work in the evening . . . and minimize traffic disruptions while renewing our infrastructure. We continue to do that with sanitary sewers.”
Upcoming projects include:
- Kingsway from Falconbridge Road to Silver Hills Drive infrastructure improvements including bike lanes – $10 million
- Paris Street Bridge Improvement (Bridge of Nations), including bike lanes – $9.2 million
- Paris/Notre Dame Bikeway –$5.5 million
