Construction Notice - Oct. 5, 2017

Posted by on 5 October 2017


The Town of Pictou would like to advise all Town residents that several construction projects began earlier this week. This work will primarily involve the Water Treatment Plant and Pressure Zone Construction near the McCulloch Education Centre and Watermain Replacement on Haliburton Road. With the watermain replacement, several paving projects will happen concurrently along Haliburton Road, Water Street, West Cottage Street and Beeches Road. 

The Water Treatment Plant and Pressure Zone Construction areas will be fenced for public safety, but a higher volume of heavy equipment traffic should be expected in the surrounding areas. Building construction will begin this fall with    groundwork for piping and pressure zones commencing in the spring.

Haliburton Road Watermain replacement will be broken into two phases. Phase 1 will be between West River Road and Veterans Drive, while phase 2 will be between Veterans Drive and the overpass. Residents should experience minimal  service disruptions during construction. The watermain and paving work will run until mid-December.

The Town is asking residents to temporarily avoid using the trail near the elementary and to be vigilant in construction areas. A schedule will be provided for both projects on the Town’s website ( and Facebook  page when it is available
