The Town of Bridgewater will start its annual pavement renewal program on Sunday, August 21.

This year there are 14 projects spread out across the town and many are expected to have an impact on traffic.

The planned list of 2022 pavement renewal project locations includes:

  • Aberdeen Road (LaHave to Davison)
  •  Alexandra Avenue (Crescent to Acadia)
  •  Alpine Drive (Dublin to Civic #15)
  •  Audrey Drive (Meldrum to Bennett)
  •  Christie Street (Parkdale to Civic #9 Elizabeth)
  •  Glen Allan Drive (Etna to LaHave)
  •  Jubilee Road (Alexandra to Fern)
  •  Jubilee Road (Marlboro to DesBrisay)
  •  King Street (Park to School)
  •  King Street (Starr to Victoria)
  •  LaHave Street (Elm to Aberdeen)
  •  Logan Road (King to Wentzell)
  •  Nafthal Drive (Glen Allan to Pinehurst)
  •  North Street (Winburn to LaHave)
  •  Victoria Road (High to Town Line)

Each section of street will take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to complete. Generally, planing work will take place first and motorists should slow down and use caution when crossing the lip/drop between a planed area and regular pavement. The work will include traffic being controlled with traffic control personnel. Every effort will be made to minimize the disruption to residents and businesses in order to complete the work, however, motorists are advised to expect delays when travelling throughout Bridgewater during the work and to allow for extra travel time accordingly.

Crews are authorized to work from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily so residents can expect to hear construction-related noises during those hours.

Bridgewater communications officer Patrick Hirtle says the town will be posting updates on social media as the contractor informs them of where they will be working each day so residents can prepare for any traffic delays.

Garbage collection will not be impacted by the work.
