Update on Construction Projects

Sarnia and Western Intersection

Last week there was an on line presentation regarding the assessment of improvements at Western Road and Sarnia Road. You can review the presentation and the slides presented at https://getinvolved.london.ca/westernsarnia The next meeting, which will present the preferred option, will take place in the spring.

Metamora Storm Sewer Project

There have been some delays due to weather and rain. The City’s new plan is to wrap up the slope and outfall works by the end of this month and defer the roadworks (storm sewer, catch basins and curb work) until the spring. It’s never ideal to lay asphalt or concrete during cold months – you’ll see some temporary measures installed for the time being. Once the weather warms up in the spring, the crew will be back out on site for roughly 3 weeks to complete the rest of the work and address any deficiencies.

City staff will advise as to when replantings will take place and if the trail entrance will remain closed until all work is completed.

Western Road and Sarnia Road / Philip Aziz Avenue

The City of London is studying the best road and intersection improvements for the Western Road and Sarnia Road / Philip Aziz Avenue intersection. The intent of the study is to identify improvements in the study area that will accommodate the increased traffic, address pedestrian/cyclist/vehicular safety and improve road width constraints along Philip Aziz Avenue.

A virtual Public Information Centre (PIC) is scheduled for Wednesday December 1, 2021 at 6 pm. The PIC will be presented using the Zoom Webinar Platform. You must register for the PIC on the City of London Website at: https://london.ca/westernsarnia where you will see some additional information about the project. PIC No. 1 will present the updated problem/opportunity statement, a review of the study progress, the evaluation of the alternative planning solutions including the preliminary recommended planning solution and project timeline.
