August 6, 2021:
DIHE TO BEGIN WATER AND SEWER WORK IN KANA:TAKON
PHASE 1 — HILLTOP DRIVE:
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne Department of Infrastructure, Housing & Environment (DIHE) will commence works to address deficiencies in the sanitary sewer, storm sewer and ditches, and watermain, by the reconstruction of Hilltop Drive & Park Street within the District of Kana:takon (St. Regis). The construction has been awarded to Lazore’s Construction and will be arranged to provide the least disruption to the local community as possible. It is being done in two phases to allow traffic route detours that will be required for the duration of each phase of the project (2021/2022).
Hilltop Drive is the first phase of 570 meters of road/watermain reconstruction. Early stages of the project are to include virtual information sessions (via Zoom) with the community; these sessions are scheduled for Wednesday, August 11 and Thursday, August 12 at 4:30 p.m. The mobilization of contractor equipment, with installation of temporary fencing and safety precaution signage, is expected to begin on Monday, August 16. It is anticipated that the work on Phase 1 will be completed in November 2021.
PHASE 2 — PARK STREET:
Park Street is the second phase of 420 meters of road reconstruction that will follow the same methods of construction as the first phase, but will be started in early Spring 2022 and completed within the year 2022.
