Hours of work
Our hours of work will be Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Occasional evening or Saturday work may be required.
You may experience traffic delays throughout the construction season as we anticipate temporarily closing a lane of traffic on the side of the road where crews are working. In some cases, we may need to close portions of the road for a 24-hour period and reroute traffic temporarily.
In case of emergency, our construction partner, AECON, is able to provide immediate access to any property or road. Traffic disruptions and accommodations will be clearly marked and we will provide advance notification where possible.
In some areas, we may need to trim or remove trees or other vegetation where we are installing the pipeline to meet safety clearance requirements.
During construction, you can expect typical activity such as vehicles, equipment and crews in the area. Work will create typical noise associated with construction. We will take measures to ensure we comply with local bylaws for noise control. If it's necessary to temporarily exceed acceptable noise levels, we will work with municipalities to obtain the required permits.
Safety is a responsibility we all share. We will maintain our work areas in a safe and secure manner, and perform our work according to all local bylaws and occupational health and safety and environmental requirements. We will take every precaution to ensure public safety, including fencing or marking construction areas to restrict access.
COVID-19 measuresThe health and safety of our customers and staff is our top priority. Due to the heightened attention related to COVID-19, we need the public to maintain a distance of two metres at all times.
To help ensure we all stay safe during summer construction, please:
- Slow down around construction.
- Use alternate routes, if possible.
- Obey all traffic and lane controls, including flag people.
- Stay outside of barriers and fences.
- Keep children and pets a safe distance away from work sites and equipment.
