Black Bay Road Pavement Resurfacing

The Town of Petawawa Public Works Department will be overseeing the reconstruction of one (1) kilometre of Black Bay Road. The construction area begins at Doran Road (County Road #26) and ends at 605 Black Bay Road (St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church). The current road width will be increased to allow for a one (1) metre paved shoulder. The construction will begin June 15, 2023, and will involve the following phases:

  • Ditching and entrance culvert replacements in specific locations as per conditional survey completed prior to project commencement
  • Pulverizing of existing roadway to a granular condition
  • Grading and granular preparation of the roadway will follow, along with road paving, shouldering, and reinstatement of those driveway ends affected by the construction
  • Pavement markings will be completed at the end of the construction project
  • The project is to be completed by August 14, 2023

The construction site will remain open to local traffic through all phases of construction. All residents and businesses, along this section Black Bay Road will have access to their respective driveways throughout the construction process. Garbage and recycling collection will not be affected.

Residents/business owners should expect minor traffic delays, some dust, and some additional noise due to heavy equipment and trucks. The Town is responsible for dust control during the construction process, and the site will be inspected regularly by Public Works staff throughout the construction process.

The Town of Petawawa continues to invest your tax dollars in infrastructure renewal, and we thank you for your patience during the upcoming Black Bay Road reconstruction project.
