Subject: TransCanada’s Gravenhurst Pipe Replacement Project – Construction Update
 
Dear Neighbours:
 
We write to update you on the status of the Gravenhurst Pipe Replacement Project (Project). As you may recall, this Project includes replacing a pipeline crossing of the Severn River by drilling (Direct Pipe Installation or DPI), to avoid disturbance of the bed, banks, and navigation, followed by replacement of 1.8 km of existing pipeline north and south of the river.
 
The drilled crossing of the Severn River and Canal Road is now complete and our crews have demobilized from the site and completed preliminary cleanup activities. The balance of the construction is now on hold for the summer months.
 
In September 2018, crews will return to begin the construction activities associated with Phase 2 of the 1.8 km of pipe replacement, north and south of the Severn River. The hours for this work are expected to be Monday to Saturday, from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. We expect this work to be complete before the end of 2018. TransCanada will provide you with notice prior to the commencement of this work.
 
We would like to extend our sincere appreciation and thanks to our neighbours for your patience throughout this Project. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 705-238-0665.  Wishing you a safe and enjoyable summer.
 
Sincerely,
 
Brian MacDonnell
