October 12 Update - MD Road Crews Working in Jamieson Road Area

October 12, 2018 Update

With next week looking rather mild and favorable we are hoping to continue work on the ditching improvements along select portions of Jamieson Road, please watch for and obey construction signage that will be placed out prior to commencing work each day, especially around the Great Grey Owl Road intersection, as this is of particular concern for us with its limited sightlines. 

Thank You.

September 26, 2018 Update

Work commenced Tuesday September 25, 2018 in addressing a number of flooding /erosion issues along Jamieson Road in the following areas:

  • Approximately 1 km. NW of the MD boundary, grading was done to redirect water back into the ditch to combat erosion of the paved shoulder. The area was found to be fairly saturated and mucky, reworking of this area will be done once it has dried out sufficiently.
  • Establishing ditches along the east and west sides of Great Grey Owl Trial was completed 230m. north to direct water back into the north ditch of Jamieson road to prevent water from flowing onto and across Jamieson road during spring run off and major storm events. Gravel was applied to this worked section of road and a crown established to ensure water on the road sheds to the ditches created throughout. The culvert at The Jamieson Road and Great Gray Owl Tr. was also located and will be cleaned out as soon as the excavator arrives on site in the upcoming weeks.

The extended long range forecast is not looking very favorable, thus, further road works in the area are anticipated to continue following the Thanksgiving Day long weekend.

Thank You,

MD Operations Department

In the coming weeks, the MD will begin ditch improvements and snow fence installations at select locations throughout Jamieson Road. Once commenced it is anticipated that the duration of the work will only be a couple of days with little or no disruption to traffic flows. Please watch for and obey construction signage as some of this work will take place on hills and corners throughout.
