Notice of Construction


The Muncipality of Shuniah is proceeding with the replacement of the Scott Drive culvert located approximately 250 meters southwest of the Scott Drive and Birch Beach Road intersection. Pete’s Backhoe Service Ltd. will be completing the construction work on behalf of the Municipality. Construction is expected to begin by approximately June 25, 2018, and is expected to be completed by September 30, 2018.

The work involves the replacement of the existing Scott Drive culvert with a new steel box culvert on concrete footings. The work also includes full width paving replacement within the limits of the excavation. The existing grade and alignment of the roadway will be maintained.

Vehicular and pedestrian access through the construction zone will be maintained throughout construction, albeit, in a limited capacity. Thoroughfare will be limited to a single lane and a reduced speed limit of 15 km/hr for the duration of construction. The Municipality requests that residents do not park on the shoulder of Scott Drive within the vicinity of the construction zone so traffic flow is not hindered.

Please be aware of potential hazards in the vicinity of the construction area (ie. excavations, construction machinery, etc.) and inform children accordingly.

JML Engineering has been retained by the Municipality of Shuniah to provide contract administration services for this project. JML staff will be on site intermittently supervising the construction work.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the project, please contact the Contract Administrator for JML Engineering, Mr. Bill Warren, at 345-1131, or email
