Coordinating Our Work With City Work

Each year Peterborough Utilities' Engineering Department meets with the companies with buried infrastructure in the roadway as the Utility Liaison & Locations Committee (ULLC) to discuss work to be performed in the upcoming construction season. The intent of these meetings is to collaborate on projects in order to minimize the disruption to our customers streetscapes. Each party discusses areas of the city that require infrastructure rehabilitation or replacement. Wherever possible both the City and Peterborough Utilities will coordinate work on a street rather than performing separate infrastructure work at different times. This reduces the number of times a street will be disrupted and also the overall cost to each party for infrastructure repair or replacement.


What should Homeowners & Businesses expect?

Every year the Peterborough Utilities and the City of Peterborough Public Works Department plan coordinated capital works during the summer months. Work typically takes place between early May to December each year. Prior to construction, homes in the affected areas are notified by mail and proposed streets will be posted annually on the website.

For affected homeowners, please note the following: 

During the course of construction, we endeavour to keep any inconvenience to a minimum. We ask if you could please avoid parking automobiles on the street during construction.

Traffic detours, when necessary, will be in place during the construction periods with local/emergency traffic and garbage collection permitted.

The Peterborough Utilities' policy is to reinstate all roadways, boulevards, driveways and lawn areas that are disturbed by new construction work. Restoration will be completed promptly. To assist with the restoration, please water the replaced sod as needed.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

After hours construction emergency calls should be directed to 705-748-9300.
