Look forward to regular Public Works updates. Here’s what’s happening at Oneida this week:

Roads

Fairgrounds Road Construction

  • The tender has been awarded to J-ARR Civil Infrastructures Limited.
  • Construction will begin at the start of August.
  • The project is expected to be completed by October 30.
  • A pre-site meeting is scheduled for July.

Ongoing Work

  • Crews will continue retrieving gravel from the ditches and reconstructing shoulders on Fairgrounds Road South.
  • Roadside grass cutting will continue this week.
