Hennessey Road Reconstruction - 2021

UPDATE (2021-05-06)

This project is broken into three (3) sections, and four (4) steps for each zone:

Sections:

  1. McLaughlin Dr. to Fairview Knoll Dr.
  2. Fairview Knoll Dr. to Magellan Dr.
  3. Magellan Dr. to Elmwood Dr.

Steps:

  1. Sewer pipes
  2. Drinking water pipes
  3. Curb construction & street improvements
  4. Sidewalk & trail construction / Landscaping

As each step has its own specialized crew, they follow each other as swiftly as possible, weather permitting, within each section, and from section to section. So when the sewer pipe crew completes their work in section 1, they move to section 2, while the water pipe crew starts their work in section 1. It is a carefully planned dance!

This means that the road closures, detours and access points will change as project moves along – however, residents will always have access to their homes.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Starting in May 2021, the City of Moncton will be undertaking the street reconstruction of Hennessey Road, from McLaughlin Drive to Elmwood Drive.

The scope of work will involve the full reconstruction of the existing street, including new granular materials, asphalt pavement and concrete curb and gutter.

The project will also replace the existing concrete sidewalk on the north side of the Hennessey Road with new 1.5m-wide concrete sidewalk, while the concrete sidewalk on the south side of Hennessey Road will be replaced by a new 3.0m-wide asphalt multi-use path.

The multi-use pathway will be suitable for both pedestrians and cyclists. The finished street width of Hennessey Road will be slightly narrower than the existing street, in order to accommodate the wider asphalt multi-use path.

This narrowing of Hennessey Road will still permit on-street parking, but will have narrower travel lanes. These narrower travel lanes will assist in ‘calming’ the existing traffic, with the goal of reducing vehicle operating speeds along the street.

Other key elements of the project will include:

  • Replacement of the existing watermain on Hennessey Road, along with the water services to each property;
  • The provision of temporary water for residents while the watermain is being replaced;
  • Localized repairs to the existing storm and sanitary sewer systems;
  • The installation of new traffic signals at the Hennessey Road / McLaughlin Drive intersection;
  • Restoration of driveways and grassed areas that are impacted by construction activities.
  • The installation of a new signalized pedestrian crossing at Xavier Avenue to facilitate pedestrian crossings of McLaughlin Drive to the new school being constructed.

It is anticipated that the work would be completed in October 2021.

During construction, traffic may be reduced to single-lane through traffic during the day and may also include elements such as road closures (except to local traffic) and detours.
