Statement: Johnston Road Construction Notice

Johnston Road Revitalization Rendering

The City would like to inform residents and businesses of the upcoming construction work starting this week on Johnston Road
from North Bluff Road to Russell Avenue.
The construction work involves the reconstruction and beautification of Johnston Road’s streetscape, which includes safer
new sidewalks, convenient crosswalks, rain gardens, and treed seating areas, to name a few exciting upgrades that will take place.

We are striving to minimize public impact over the long term and will take this opportunity to simultaneously upgrade the critical water and
sewer infrastructure on this block, and the block to the south, thereby ensuring capacity and reliability for this growing neighbourhood.

There will be partial road closures along Johnston Road between North Bluff Road and Russell Avenue during this time.

Pre-construction related work began May 16, 2018, with full construction to occur after the May long weekend. Crews will be working
Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 7:00pm, with possible extended hours during evenings and weekends, as needed. Signage and certified
traffic control people will be in place.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What is the purpose of the Johnston Road Streetscape Revitilization Project?
The Johnston Road Streetscape Revitalization project will ultimately improve accessibility, safety, and ease of use along Johnston Road.
It will also provide a beautiful canopy of trees along the corridor, areas for seating, including outdoor café seating along the new
widened sidewalks, which will help revitalize the Town Centre.

What is the duration of the Johnston Road Streetscape Revitilization Project?
This capital project is scheduled to start in May of 2018 and be completed, in Fall of 2018.

Who do I call if I have concerns during the construction process?
The City will make every effort to minimize the impact of construction on your daily routine and/or business. During construction, we will
do our best to address your concerns, so please bring any immediate concerns you may have to Engineering and Municipal Operations
by calling 604-541-2181 or emailing Operations@whiterockcity.ca

How will the City manage traffic and lanes?
At least two lanes will be open on Johnston Road during construction. On-site traffic control personnel will ensure the safety of road and sidewalk users. Information about any full road closures will be communicated in advance.

Will the construction work be phased?
Yes, the construction activity will be completed in phases to minimize disruptions to businesses and residents.

How will I be able to access my residence/business during the construction phase?
Access to residences and businesses will be maintained. Where sidewalks are being reconstructed, detours will be in effect for
pedestrians to ensure public safety during construction.

How will you manage noise associated with construction?
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that comes with construction of a major capital project and appreciate your
cooperation and patience. During construction, there will be some noise as crews work on portions of the road surface. Crews will be working Monday to Friday from 7:30am to 7:00pm, with possible extended hours during evenings and weekends, as needed. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work to complete the Johnston Road Streetscape Revitilization Project.
