Skinner Ave Water Line Project to Begin

Starting Monday, December 7, contractors will begin work on Skinner Ave from Richmond Street to N St. Clair Street. This project includes replacing the water lines and repaving the road. Crews will start work on the Richmond Street end and work their way north. Traffic will be limited to one lane. A projected completion date is set for May 31, 2021.


This project was originally scheduled for spring 2020, but due to the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic and the state hold on funding, the project was put on hold. Now that funding is available, we are working quickly to ensure that the residents of Skinner Ave receive their promised repairs.


Although road construction is not common in the winter months, it is possible. Crews will be working on the water line portion through the winter and will begin repaving when the weather breaks in the spring. Plows will be able to access and clear the road.
