May 19, 2017 - The water main from Gray St to Water St is going to be shut down at 1pm today (May 19), for an hour or less. This needs to be done in order to confirm which buildings or part buildings have water services off of that section of the water main. This will ensure everyone who needs to be connected to temporary water is connected.
David Ryerson from Mid-Valley is notifying everyone on the street.
May 15, 2017 - The Town of Windsor would like to advise the businesses, residents, shoppers and travelling public that the Gerrish Street Reconstruction Project from Water Street to Grey Street has begun.
DURING CONSTRUCTION, ALL BUSINESSES WILL REMAIN OPEN. PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THEM AND YOUR COMMUNITY.
You will notice activities starting to ramp up during the next few weeks. Contractors will begin by installing a temporary water system to provide water during the duration of the project. In order for this system to be connected, workers will need to gain access to premises'. This along with pre-inspection activities are meant to expedite the construction process allowing a tight work schedule to be executed. The project is expected to take 12 weeks. After the temporary water system is connected, contractors will begin excavations on the Water Street end of Gerrish and work toward Grey St for the installation of new water and wastewater lines.
Construction will create road closures from Grey St to Water St; however, pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project and we encourage everyone to continue to support our local businesses and shop locally, especially during this construction project, to lessen the burden on the shops in this area. Parking on this section will also be restricted; however, there is parking at various locations close by. Maps will be available within the next week.
The Town of Windsor apologizes for the inconvenience this may cause; however, we are asking for everyone's cooporation and patience as we work to replace the critical underground water and sewer infrastructure along with reconstructing the street and sidewalks along this section of Gerrish Street.
As well, a new "page" titled "Gerrish St Proj" will be available on our website by May 31st (visible from our homepage). It is there that you will continue to find communication updates on the project. As well, there will mentions on our Facebook & Twitter pages, but both will lead back to that particular website page as well.
