Manning Road's facelift continues. Beginning later this month, the Lakewood Park Stormwater Channel on the west side of the Park from St Thomas Street to Riverside Drive will be constructed. The Channel will provide stormwater storage allowing the enclosure of the East Townline Drain along the west side of Manning Road and for the new residential areas approved for the southeast section of the former Lakewood Golf Course.
You'll also see the site preparation work begin for the Estates of Lakewood Park Development, (tree removals and stripping of topsoil). This work is required to allow the stockpiling of the excavated materials from the Channel. The stockpiled material will be there shall remain until such time the site servicing for the development begins in the Spring 2015.
Construction of the Channel is scheduled to begin in later December 2014 and should be completed in Spring 2015.
Traffic on Manning Road will be maintained during construction; however you may experience some minor delays when construction vehicles are entering/exiting the site.
