Construction Details

2016’s construction work on this project is expected to take place from April 2016 to December 2016.  In 2015, HSC completed most of the required culvert replacements, and the first two of three final lifts of asphalt from Grey Road 21 to Arrowhead Road.  The 2016 works will largely consist of asphalt removal, the addition of granular material and three lifts of asphalt pavement on the entire 13.2 kilometers.  There is also a pre-cast concrete box culvert to be installed at the West end of the project.

Hwy 26 - Paving at GR19Work Hours

Generally, work will take place between 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Work will not take place during statutory or other major holiday observances unless an emergency occurs and crews are required to be on-site.


As with all construction projects, there will be some temporary inconveniences to the local community. During regular construction hours, most work will be completed under flag person controlled, single lane closures.  Please be patient with our traffic control staff – they will attempt to keep traffic flowing with as little disruption as possible, while still maintaining a safe workplace.

During the Box Culvert replacement pedestrian/bike traffic on the Georgian Trail will be detoured around the work zone.  Vehicle traffic may also be detoured around the work zone onto local Grey County roads.
