Construction on Grand River Street North to begin this month

County of BrantConstruction on Grand River Street North to begin this month

Construction on Grand River Street North in Paris will begin this month and will include the replacement of watermain and sanitary sewers from 100 metres south of Trillium Way to Hartley Avenue.

This is the first phase of a multi-year project for upgrades to Grand River Street North as recommended through the Grand River Street North Corridor Environmental Study Report and the Paris Master Servicing Plan.

During this phase of construction, traffic will be managed by the following:

  • Grand River Street North will be reduced to one lane, one way in the southbound direction only.
  • All northbound traffic will be detoured along Silver Street, Oak Avenue and Scott Avenue.
  • Intersections and driveways will be open but will require one-to-two-day closures from time to time throughout the work.
  • All businesses will remain open during construction.   

Additional safety measures have also been implemented along the detour routes including speed humps, speed display signage, and a temporary school crosswalk on Oak Avenue at Whitlaw Way. The County will monitor the detour routes and implement additional measures, if required.

Please refer to Municipal 511 http://www.municipal511.ca for the most up-to-date traffic information regarding road construction and closures.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding the project, please contact the County’s Capital Project Manager, Joe Murphy at 519.44BRANT (519.442.7268).

Future phases of the work will include the widening of Grand River Street North along with replacement of curbs and sidewalk and the installation of roundabouts at intersection locations.

Work in 2024 will include the installation of a roundabout at Scott Avenue and continuing north toward Hartley Avenue as well as the reconstruction of the signalized intersection at Silver Street and extension of a new street from that intersection to the east. Future works are subject to budget approval and further notice of these works will be provided once approved.
