THE COUNTIES, Ontario – Work on the Morrisburg roundabout is proceeding on schedule and is about 40 per cent complete, according to the latest estimate from the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry’s transportation services department.
The roundabout project was initiated this summer, and will see a complete redesign of Morrisburg’s main intersection at County Roads 31 and 2, as well as streetscaping updates and amenities.
“We’ve completed all of the electrical removals, existing storm sewer removals and installed 90 per cent of the new storm structures and sewer lines,” said Dana Grant, SDG field technician. “We’ve installed the subdrain, two turn-lane buildouts and partial-depth asphalt removal.”
Currently (Aug. 25) crews are in the midst of wrapping up storm sewer work. The storm sewer portion of the project will be completed by Aug. 27, said Grant.
The project is on schedule to be completed by Oct. 29.
“As we move into the late summer and fall we will be pulverizing the existing asphalt at the intersection of SDG 2 and SDG 31, with full-depth material removals completed, and a new granular base installed,” said Grant, adding that concrete will then be added for the median and roundabout apron.
The roundabout is a $4.9-million project that includes a partnership between SDG, the Municipality of South Dundas and both the federal and provincial governments.
