Project Description:

The Town of Port Hawkesbury is rebuilding Pitt Street and Napean Street based on a project budget of 4.6 million dollars.  The work will include the total rebuild of both streets including replacement of all buried water mains, sanitary and storm sewers, replacement of road gravel and asphalt, as well as concrete sidewalks and curb and gutterage.  Also included in the scope of work is replacement of all lot services, connection to existing municipal infrastructure, landscaping, removal of existing manholes, catch basins and hydrants, addition of many new trees.

This project was selected for support from the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund and will receive funding from both the federal (50%) and provincial (25%) governments. 

The Town has hired Strait Engineering Ltd to complete the design and oversee the project.  


The construction work is scheduled to begin in September 2017, and finish on or before March 2018.  Like any project, changes to the schedule may occur and the Town will keep residents informed of any such changes.
