Update on the Quadra storm drain replacement project
August 13, 2021
We are wrapping up work on the Quadra storm drain replacement project, which showcases the work of Engineering Department; delivering infrastructure upgrades from inception to completion. There is a tremendous level of effort, coordination, and planning that goes into completing a project of this size.
Over the past couple of weeks, staff have been working together to deliver underground and surface upgrades to Quadra Street which include:
- Replacing 62 meters of old wooden stave storm drain with concrete box culverts
- Installing a 20 meter long concrete retaining wall to support the new storm drain infrastructure;
- Replacing more than 50 sidewalk panels; and
- A series of road repairs.
When this work is completed, Quadra between Falmouth Road and McKenzie Avenue will have a full pavement overlay including new pavement markings.
Here is a video showing some of the work being done to replace the pipe and create the retaining wall.
Thank you to the community for your patience through the closure!
