Scott Ave infrastructure will be renewed.

Scott Avenue, Paris will be reconstructed at a cost of almost $1 million.

This month, Morley's Contracting (Brantford) Ltd. of Paris won the tender for the job with a bid of $968,703.74 plus HST, one of 12 submissions received by the county for the project.

The sanitary sewer on the road had reached the end of its service life, said Clint Brown, public works inspector for Brant, and needed to be replaced. At the same time, the county will be replacing and upsizing the watermain. The road will also get a storm sewer system which it was lacking in that section, Brown said.

New sanitary sewers, storm sewers, watermain, curb and gutter, asphalt and new sidewalk will be installed from Grand River Street North to about 533 metres west. New sidewalk will be built westerly to Oak Avenue.

G. Douglas Vallee Ltd. of Simcoe will administer the project for about $116,000.

The work will start about May 5 and be completed by early or mid-fall, Brown said.

The upgrading is part of a Paris-wide improvement plan for water and sewage, said Lee Robinson, Director of Engineering. Another important part of the plan will be a new elevated water tank for Woodslee Road near Lee Avenue, estimated to be built in 2015
