Storm sewer and shoulder work planned in Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on November 5, 2013

Between road work and sewer projects, your tax dollars are always being spent for some sort of infrastructure project.  The Ottawa City Council Tuesday night hired Reese Construction to place stone along the shoulder of East Stevenson Road.

City Engineer Dave Noble says the stone is needed because there are often trucks lined up along the road waiting to get into the Pet Smart Distribution Center.  The work is costing approximately $40,000.  He hopes they can get started soon and have it done before winter.

The city hired C & H Excavation to build a storm sewer on Hillside Avenue.  Noble says they’re concerned the farm tiles that have been there for years won’t be able to handle all of the drainage and that could lead to flooded homes.  That’s going to cost about $52,000.  Noble isn’t sure when the work would begin.
