Spring Updates 2022🌷

7th Line Reconstruction

Work is already underway on the 7th line between Sideroad 10 and Sideroad 15 where the road reconstruction is occurring. This work includes reconstruction of the road surface including widening of the road, paving of the road and shoulder, removal of trees, and installation of ditches and culverts. The work was identified in the 2018 Roads Needs Study as it doesn’t meet our current design standards.

If you have questions or concerns, please check out the Virtual Public Open House (VPOH) for the 7th Line Road Reconstruction on the Town’s website at www.newtecumseth.ca/7thLineRoadReconstruction.

The VPOH will be available on the Town’s website from the afternoon of Wednesday, March 23rd to Wednesday, April 6th, 2022. Details of the work are provided in a short video, slides, and detailed drawings. There is also a comment sheet for members of the public.
