Public Works Projects Map icon The Town of Mono will once again be undertaking a range of capital and maintenance projects in 2017.

The projects planned for 2017 are detailed in our Public Works Projects Map below. This interactive map allows you to view both the capital projects; such as bridge repairs, and the planned maintenance tasks including paving, dust suppressant, and road sweeping.

Capital Projects - Roads & Bridges

Further details regarding planned capital roads projects are detailed below.

Bridge 18 Public Meetings/Reserve Contribution and Final Design Options
This bridge (Large CSP Culvert) was identified in the 2012 Bridge Inspection Report as showing increased signs of structural degradation. Since 2013 it has been monitored twice a year for movement, deflection and bolt hole cracking. While its movement has not been identified as significant, the cracks and deflection are major concerns outlining its requirement for replacement. In the 2015 and 2016 budget session’s research and design had not progressed far enough along to recommend replacement and reserves have been set aside since 2015. Landowner discussions, design options etc. have been ongoing. Engineering Design, Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry and Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority discussions have been ongoing since 2015. This structure has one of the Towns higher complexity levels of construction. It is situated in between two human made ponds on the north and south side and it contains a private dam on the north side. The remaining issues will be smoothed out during 2017 and full replacement will be ready in 2018.
Bridge 9 Evaluation/Reserve
This bridge (Cast-in-Place Concrete Rigid Frame) was identified in the 2012 and 2014 Bridge Inspection Reports as showing increased signs of structural degradation. Within the next 5 years it is in need of concrete repairs to the barriers/parapet walls, deck, soffit and abutment walls throughout the majority of the structure. It currently has a posted load limit of 16 tonnes. The cost to implement the Engineer’s rehabilitation and roadside safety recommendations in the next 1 to 5 years is starting to outweigh the long term cost of replacement. In 2017, Public Works will enact a feasibility study and complete a thorough condition assessment to compare rehabilitation options versus replacement.
Bridge 10 Evaluation/Reserve
This bridge (Steel Girder with Timber Deck) was identified in the 2012 and 2014 Bridge Inspection Reports as showing increased signs of structural degradation. Concrete repairs are required on the abutment and wingwalls. Structural Steel Girders are showing signs of segregation and degrading rehabilitation works of the past are evident. The timber deck/soffits require repairs. This Bridge currently has a load limit of 9 tonnes. This reduced tonnage is less than our fleet vehicles and local emergency service vehicles require. The cost to implement the Engineer’s rehabilitation and roadside safety recommendations in the next 1 to 5 years will not increase the load posting and this rehabilitation cost is starting to outweigh the long term cost of replacement. Public Works will enact a feasibility study in 2017 to ensure rehabilitation is the correct long term action in lieu of replacement.
Bridge 11 Evaluation/Reserve
This bridge (Steel Girder with Timber Deck) was identified in the 2012 and 2014 Bridge Inspection Reports as showing increased signs of structural degradation. Concrete repairs are required on the abutment and wingwalls. Structural Steel Girders are showing signs of segregation and degrading rehabilitation works of the past are evident. The timber deck/soffits require repairs. It will be posted to 9 tonnes once a review of the 2016 Inspection Report is finalized, similar to Bridge 10. Once again, this reduced tonnage is less than our fleet vehicles and local emergency service vehicles require. The cost to implement the Engineer’s rehabilitation and roadside safety recommendations in the next 1 to 5 years will not increase the load posting and this rehabilitation cost is starting to outweigh the long term cost of replacement. Public Works will enact a feasibility study in 2017 to ensure rehabilitation is the correct long term action in lieu of replacement.
Golden Road, Robinson Road and Cedar Grove Road
With the Asphalt Rehabilitated and Recycled in Place in 2015 these sections of road only received the first coat of HL8 Asphalt mix. Settling is nonexistent and a final application of HL3 Asphalt needs to be applied to start the useful life cycle of these Assets in 2017.
Lynda Avenue, Hill Road, Purple Road and Randy Avenue
With the Asphalt Rehabilitated and Recycled in Place in 2015 these sections of road only received the first coat of HL8 Asphalt mix. Settling is non apparent and a final application of HL3 Asphalt needs to be applied to start the useful life cycle of these Assets in 2017.
Campbell Road
Rehabilitated in 2012 this project was taken on to reduce the maintenance requirement for a section of gravel road bounded by asphalt pavement. It was geographically and time prohibitive to continue to retain as a gravel surface and only received the first coat of HL8 Asphalt mix. Settling is non apparent and a final application of HL3 Asphalt needs to be applied to start the complete useful life cycle of this asset in 2017.
Browns Road
Rehabilitated in 2011 this project was taken on to reduce the maintenance requirement for a section of gravel road that endured serious washouts following rainfall events. It geographic location and untimely maintenance made is cost prohibitive to continue to retain as a gravel surface and only received the first coat of HL8 Asphalt mix in 2011. Some small areas of settling have occurred that will require stabilization followed by a final application of HL3 Asphalt to start the useful life cycle of this asset in 2017.
1st Line Urbanization
As a result of the Brookfield Fieldstone Development the Town of Mono required the Developer to urbanize the final portion of 1st Line from the new French Drive to Stonegate Avenue (Headwaters Lane). While the majority of this requirement was a cause of the development there is a portion that is a benefit to existing residents. As a result of detailed design and conditions set by the Credit Valley Conservation Authority has resulted in an increased cost of this project above what was originally set aside in the Development Charge Bylaw. This urbanization will be completed in 2017.
Gravel Road Resurfacing
This item was originally referenced in the budget under the maintenance portion. It was then determined to be a Capital investment due to the financial impact. In 2016 Council saw a significant decrease to this budget line. It was explained to Council that years of dedicated application of gravel has proved to provide an excellent driving surface for our gravel road network that sees low volume AADT counts. However with a continuous yearly application Public Works was finding that our roads are starting to effect residential driveway heights and a steady decrease in the quantity has resulted over the past 3 years. In 2017 I have recommended the same decrease to continue. There is an increase to the 2016 budget due to the length of roads in this year’s section and an expected cost increase due to trucking distances as gravel sources become farther from our centre. As noted last year the Town is separated into four quadrants. This year we will be moving to a six quadrant approach with reduced application rates. Only areas showing signs of gravel requirement will be done. This should continue to expedite calcium application similar to spring of 2016.
Purple Hill Reserve
Public Works is setting aside a reserve contribution for the future rehabilitation/replacement of our concrete road network in Purple Hill. In summer of 2016 Town Engineer and Public Works staff started an evaluation of the existing concrete surface. The results of these engineering assessments are still on going and expected fall of 2017. A continued recommendation for reserves is still being proposed.
Driveway Culvert
Continuation of replacement of aging and failing driveway culverts as required.
