Alton Road West Reconstruction

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In 2023, Council approved the reconstruction of Alton Road West between Highway 38 and the Loughborough Portland Boundary Road. This 3.7 km section was selected due to its very poor road surface ratings in the Township's 2022 Comprehensive Roads Needs Study.

Key information

  • Work will begin in May 2023 and will take 10-12 weeks until September 2023.
  • Work will typically be done between the hours of 7 am and 7 pm, Monday to Friday (if weekend work is required, we'll notify area residents)
  • The road will be accessible at all times with one lane open. Expect traffic delays.

The project includes the following activities and improvements:

  • Existing roadway will be pulverized, re-graded and built up with improved granular base to meet design cross-section.
  • Roadway cross-culverts will be removed and replaced “like for like” at designated locations. Private entrance culverts will also be replaced.
  • Ditching improvements will be carried out for improved roadside drainage.
  • Driving lane widths will be constructed to meet current road standards and be topped with a new double surface treatment (tar and chip).

This work is categorized as a Schedule “A” project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process and is considered a pre-approved construction project under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act. Construction activities will be led by the Township of South Frontenac Public Works team.
