The City of Fredericton categorizes their construction projects into four categories.
Major infrastructure projects are infrastructure renewal projects that impact major roadways, and last for several months. These projects may have impacts on nearby businesses and commuter traffic. These projects often involve the replacement of buried pipes that are at the end of their usable life. Combining underground infrastructure fixes with needed road work means that the City shouldn’t need to return to perform upgrades for 20 years or more.
Neighbourhood infrastructure projects are typically infrastructure renewal projects on residential streets, and they last for several months. These projects don’t usually impact businesses or commuter traffic but do impact area residents. Most often, these projects involve the replacement of buried pipes that are at the end of their usable life.
Paving and Roadway Projects include asphalt milling and resurfacing work, changes to curb alignments, sidewalk renewal and improvements, and traffic and pedestrian upgrades. These projects generally involve phases of work where traffic may be impacted for shorter durations, but roads remain open.
Trail & Park Projects include infrastructure renewal such as improved parking at our local parks, resurfacing projects such as foot bridge decking or trail paving, improved access within parks including bridge and trail installations and complete renovations of existing parks such as officer square.
