Resurfacing Of Pontypool Road Tentatively Set To Begin The Week Of July 17

KAWARTHA LAKES-Road resurfacing on Pontypool Road (CKL 12) from Highway 35 to Glamorgan Road is tentatively set to begin the week of July 17.

The project will include recycling the existing asphalt/road base using the Cold-in-Place Recycling (CIR) method, placing new surface course asphalt and making minor curb replacement and repairs to the existing storm catch basins.

Cold In-Place Recycling (CIR) is a surface pavement rehab technique that reduces the life cycle cost of the pavement structure by reusing the existing asphalt pavement.

The cold nature of the process reduces the impact on the environment and preserves energy due to the absence of heat application. Since the existing road materials are being re-used, very little new material has to be brought in by truck, which reduces the carbon footprint of the project drastically in comparison to conventional methods.

CIR is considered the most effective process to mitigate reflective cracking in a cold climate and is widely utilized as a cost effective surface rehab alternative to traditional reconstruction methods due to its comparatively low cost, higher life cycle, ease of construction and it being a “Green Processes”

Working hours will be from 7am to 6pm Monday through Friday, with possible Saturday work if time is lost due to weather or other factors.

Minor work will begin the week of July 17. CIR work is set for the week of July 24. During the CIR work, sections of the road will be reduced to one lane with flagging operations.

The anticipated completion date for the project is August 31, 2023 according to the city but completion date is subject to change if time is lost due to weather or other factors
