Ottawa Greenbelt Construction begins $5.9M watermain, sewer work

Starting yesterday, Ottawa Greenbelt Construction is doing watermain and sewer work in the Carling and Kirkwood avenues area.

The $5.9 million construction project between Highway 417 and the Carlington Heights Reservoir is expected to be finished in spring 2013, according to the city.

Construction includes:

- Replacing a watermain and sewers on Lady Ellen Place;

- New sanitary sewers on McBride Street between Laperriere and Woodward avenues;

- New storm sewer on McBride Street between Raven and Lepage Avenues;

- New sidewalk on west side of McBride Street between Laperriere and Lepage avenues.

R.W. Tomlinson Ltd. bought Ottawa Greenbelt Construction and Graydex Ottawa Inc. this year as part of a "strategic planning process" to build a sewer and watermain capability into the company, the firm said at the time.
