Surveying continues on Highway 7 West

What type of work is being done?

Beginning August 24, for approximately a month, land surveyors will be taking measurements along the north side of Highway 7 West between Ansley Grove Road and Pine Valley Drive.

Why is it being done?

To more accurately document existing properties, road conditions and confirm property/project boundaries in preparation for building the vivaNext rapidway.

What impact will this have?

  • There should be little or no impact as surveyors use their portable measuring devices and make every effort to ensure area residents and businesses are not inconvenienced.
  • Some properties may need to be accessed by surveyors, and if your property is fenced and needs to be accessed, you will be personally contacted by our staff or the surveying company, Alex Marton Ltd.

Where and when will the rapidways be built?

Rapidway construction on Highway 7 West will happen in two phases over several years:
