Price's Development

 Due to construction, there may be an interruption in waste collection. If garbage is not collected on its scheduled pick-up day, it will be collected by the end of the following day.

Project Information

The Town has identified the area known as Price’s Development for wastewater servicing and drainage improvements. Price's Development generally includes Claire Glen, Patricia Drive and Martin Grove in the area of Grey County Road 19, Blue Mountain Road and Scenic Caves Road at the base of Blue Mountain Ski resort in the Town of The Blue Mountains.

Preliminary Engineering has been completed and the Town has awarded a tender for construction to North Rock Ltd. Construction is to begin in May of 2021 and to be completed by October 2021. A Public Information Centre was held on April 21st, 2021 to discuss the project. Property owners in the Price's Development area are asked to provide a Service Lateral Location before construction begins. A list of properties that have provided a location is available online and was most recently updated on June 4th, 2021. The week of May 31st, 2021, Oza Inspections began a pre-construction condition survey of properties in the area to verify existing conditions.

The construction of the sewer extension into Price’s Development is scheduled begin on July 12, 2021. The work will begin at the south limit of Windfall Subdivision behind 182 & 186 Yellow Birch Crescent. Ahead of the sewer installation, trees will be cleared in preparation for the construction, with tree clearing beginning on July 5, 2021. Prior to clearing, trees will be inspected to assure no active nests are present. The trail in the construction area will be closed for approximately three weeks during this time, and the Town apologizes for the inconvenience to impacted residents.

Project Updates

October 19, 2021: The Town is taking the opportunity of this project to implement improvements in the water distribution system on Grey Road 19 east of Patricia Drive. As a result, some water shutdowns will occur over the next two weeks. Written notices will be hand delivered to affected properties.

October 15, 2021: Scenic Caves Road has reopened, and installation of the box culvert on Grey Road 19 is nearing completion. Installation of services on Patricia Drive and Martin Grove may are scheduled to continue though the weekend and to be completed the week of October 18. Work on the main line sewer south of Grey Road 19 will continue next week as well.

October 1, 2021: The contractor is scheduled to begin installation of two new sections of box culvert starting Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Road closures will be found on Grey Road 19 from the Blue Mountain Resort roundabout to Claire Glen Road, and on Scenic Caves Road from the Blue Mountain Resort roundabout to Blue Mountain Road. The installations will be happening consecutively and are expected to be completed within two weeks. Posted detour routes on Blue Mountain Road and Claire Glen Road will ensure access from all directions is maintained for public and emergency vehicles while construction takes place.

September 22, 2021: Environment Canada issued a rainfall warning for the Town of The Blue Mountains. The Town’s contractor has cleared the ditches of obstructions and the existing culverts are open and flowing, but it’s expected that this rainfall will overwhelm the existing drainage system in Price’s Development. Inadequate grading on private property continues to put pressure on the drainage infrastructure in the area. Planned storm diversion work designed to reduce flooding in the area is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.

September 13th, 2021: The contractor has two crews working right now working on the sanitary sewers and services. The sewer and service installation on Claire Glen is complete. The sewer and services on Patricia Drive and Blue Mountain Road are slated to be finished this week, and then the crews will be transitioning onto Martin Grove. A third crew is scheduled to be on site the week of September 20 to begin working on the storm water diversion.  

August 26th, 2021: Main line work has been completed on Claire Glen and a second crew has begun work to complete servicing on Claire Glen. Main line work is nearing completion on Blue Mountain Road as construction continues on Patricia Drive. After main line work is completed on Patricia Drive, the servicing crew will begin work on servicing. A third crew is set to arrive in early September to begin work on drainage improvements.

August 16th, 2021: Due to construction, there may be a temporary interruption in the collection of waste & recycling. If not collected on the scheduled pick-up day, it will be collected by the end of the following day. 

August 13th, 2021: Construction is wrapping up on Claire Glen and crews will begin work on Blue Mountain Road between Claire Glen and Patricia Drive. There will be temporary access to County Road 19 for cars on Patricia Drive.

July 23rd, 2021: Sewer construction will continue on Claire Glen for the week of July 26th.
