Poplar Crescent Reconstruction Project

Project Updates

June 17, 2024: Trisan Construction has confirmed that their equipment and material will mobilize during the last week of June (next week). Excavation and road closures will begin July 2nd. Road closure details will be provided to Poplar Crescent residents via email from the condo presidents. 

 

June 10, 2024: Trisan Construction has confirmed that construction should start during the last week of June. 

 

May 17, 2024: The Town and Trisan Construction are currently working through preconstruction details. We anticipate that construction will start in the second week of June. 

 

May 2, 2024: It is very important for residents in the Poplar Crescent community to grant permission to GPM Environmental to perform a pre-construction inspection. If vibrations from construction cause damage to your home you will be able to use this inspection report to prove that the damage was caused by the contractor. This inspection is not mandatory and denying entry to your home will not reduce your legal rights. It's important to note that cities in Ontario do not get involved in disputes between contractors and homeowners for damage that was caused during construction. This dispute is between the homeowner and the contractor only. That being said, this inspection is free and at the very least, homeowners should allow GPM Environmental to take pictures of the exterior.   

 

April 23, 2024: Trisan Construction has been awarded the project. Preconstruction condition assessments will be starting shortly. Residents in the Poplar Crescent area will receive a letter from GPM Environmental. Residents are encouraged to respond to the letter and allow GPM Environmental to perform a condition assessment of their home. If there are any damages from vibrations or any construction activity, the condition assessment will be used to settle the claim quickly. 

Project Details

The Poplar Crescent Reconstruction Project includes the following works:

  • Replacement of the existing 150mm diameter watermain with a new 200mm diameter PVC watermain, complete with water services to the property line;
  • Replacement of the existing sanitary sewer systems with new sanitary sewers, maintenance holes and sanitary services to the property line;
  • Replacement of the existing storm sewer systems with new storm sewers, maintenance holes, catchbasins and storm services to the property line;
  • Replacement of concrete sidewalks and concrete curb and gutter;
  • Reconstruction of the road structure including new granular road base and two layers of asphalt;
  • Replacement of driveway aprons and private road entrances up to the property line; and
  • Restoration of grassed boulevard areas.

Devlin Place Stream, Pond, and Culvert Rehabilitation

Project Details

Why Are We Doing This Project?

In 2019, the Town of Aurora completed a Stream Management Master Plan (SMMP) that identified this site as one of the priority erosion mitigation projects based on the existing level of risk. This project was undertaken to address stream bank erosion concerns and improve the condition of existing infrastructure as per recommendations of the SMMP.

What Are The Proposed Works?

The proposed stream rehabilitation works include:

  • Removing failing retaining walls and installing stream channel erosion protection.
  • Removing garbage and debris from the watercourse.
  • Cleaning out the sediment in the Devlin Place culvert and performing patchwork repairs to extend the life of the culvert.
  • Rehabilitating the existing stormwater management pond behind Teasdale court to restore lost storage capacity.
  • Restoring areas disturbed by construction with native tree and shrub plantings.

Studies and Design Work Completed

  • Land Surveys
  • Utility Location Investigations
  • Soils Investigations
  • Channel Bank Stability Analysis
  • Stream Flow Analysis
  • Ecology Studies
  • Detailed Design Drawings for Construction

Construction Timing Windows

Construction may be staged with one or more starts and stops of work. This will potentially leave the site temporarily inactive to minimize construction impacts on bird nesting, bat maternity roosting, and fish spawning.

Construction Impacts & Restoration Works

To complete stream, pond and culvert rehabilitation works, trees will be removed, however native tree and shrub plantings are proposed to mitigate these impacts and restore the natural area to existing condition or better.

Project Updates

January 8th Update:

Sierra Excavating Enterprises has been awarded the project to undertake stream, pond and culvert rehabilitation work by Devlin Place. Construction will take place in stages. Tree removal is anticipated to commence in February, with stream and stormwater pond retrofit work to follow. All work is anticipated to be completed by October, 2024.

The stream rehabilitation work will include installing armour stone walls to stabilize the eroding channel banks, and realignment of the stream. Pond retrofit work will include removal of sediment build up, rehabilitation of concrete structures and installation of armour stone around the perimeter. Culvert rehabilitation work to include removal of sediment build up within and around the culvert and concrete rehabilitation in specific areas of the culvert.

As a measure of safety, the area will be closed during construction and the public are asked to refrain from entering the construction area. Thank you in advance for your patience during the construction phase of this project.

Work completed prior to January 8th update:

Letter sent to homes in the project area in December 2020 to notify the residents of the commencement of the project.
• A virtual Public Information Centre (PIC) meeting was held in November 2021 to present the plans showing existing site conditions and proposed stream and pond rehabilitation works for comment.
• Follow-up letters, phone calls and emails with residents and stakeholders over the duration of the project.

 

March 21st Update:

  • Tree clearing grubbing is complete
  • Channel works are underway
  • Installation of the armourstone retaining wall along stream bank has commenced
