Town of Carman Sidewalk Projects Update

Town of Carman Sidewalk Projects Update

Sidewalk Reconstruction

Replacement of the interlocking brick in the sidewalks throughout the business community has commenced. There are two contracts – Carman Bobcat & Excavating (Norbert Major) will be completing the sidewalks on 1st Street and 1st Avenue SW and that work started on Tuesday, May 8th. Borland Construction (the company that was awarded the Manitoba Infrastructure Highway #13 project) will be completing all the sidewalks on Main Street (Highway 13). I have been told that they plan to move into town the week of May 14th.

Carman Bobcat & Excavating Project (1st St & 1st Ave SW)

The south side of 1st Avenue SW will have a new curb and gutter installed to help give enough sidewalk grade to move any storm water away from the buildings.
All interlocking sidewalk bricks will be removed and hauled away. This will leave a sand base that will be left until Carman Bobcat & Excavating pours the concrete. Norbert Major plans to make the pours in sections in an attempt to disrupt business as little as possible. There will be minor inconveniences; however he is moving forward to complete the work as quickly as possible. The inconvenience will be when he pours immediately at the door of the business and he plans to work cooperatively with the business owners to avoid business shutdown time.

Main Street Project

At this point, we do not have a lot of information regarding the Main Street sidewalk project. We have been notified that Borland Construction will be moving in next week and the concrete is their first project.
Please encourage your customers to exercise caution when walking on the sidewalks. There are and will be uneven surfaces and care must be exercised. Thank you for your cooperation as we work together through this project. We are looking forward to a revitalized Main Street and downtown!
