Utility relocation work continues

What type of work is being done?

PowerStream Inc. will be installing new hydro poles on both sides of Highway 7.

Why is it being done?

To accommodate the widening of Highway 7 for the vivaNext rapidways.

Where and when will it take place?

  • Between Allstate Parkway and Woodbine Avenue starting March 21, 2011
  • Between Woodbine Avenue and South Town Centre Boulevard starting April 2011

How long will the work take?

Estimated completion is June 2011.

What does the work entail?

The work will be done in the following stages:

  • New poles will be delivered and distributed along the corridor
  • Holes will be dug for the new hydro poles
  • New poles will be placed and stabilized in the holes
  • Existing power lines will be transferred to the new poles
  • Existing poles will be removed and holes backfilled

What impact will there be?

  • Periodic lane closures may be required during pole delivery and installation.
  • There should be no unscheduled disruption of electrical service. PowerStream will advise clients of any planned disruption well in advance.

more than just a rapidway
rebuilding Davis from the ground up
Davis Drive is approaching its final year of construction and we thank you for bearing with us as we work hard to transform Davis Drive.

construction is challenging
Completely rebuilding Davis is a challenging and complex project that required replacing and relocating outdated utilities and infrastructure under and above ground, before road widening could begin.

what’s to come
Substantial work above ground is underway. Here’s a snapshot of how work is progressing.

 

  • Construction of the vivastation at Parkside/Longford and Davis is underway.
    The steel structure and glass canopy shelter will arrive later this fall.
  • Construction of two more vivastations at Main and Southlake Hospital
    will also begin later this year.
  • The reconstruction of the Keith Bridge will be completed this fall.

viva is coming to davis – dec. 2015
In addition to having a centre-lane bus rapidway, Davis will have wider sidewalks, green open spaces and dedicated left-turn lanes at each intersection that will improve overall traffic flow. All these changes will make Davis an even greater destination to live, work, shop and play.
