A contractor hired by Loyalist Township will be undertaking geotechnical testing in the areas of Scotland, Old Wilton, Maple, Simmons, Absalom, and Doyle roads over the next week. This work involves drilling boreholes and collecting samples to obtain subsurface information. While these activities are underway, there will be a small crew and machinery working on the road. This work may generate some lower-level noise adjacent to the investigation locations however no traffic impacts are expected.


Information from this testing will be used to determine the scope and design of future work planned for these areas.  The Township project page will be updated with additional details and timelines as this information becomes available.  Residents who have questions or concerns can contact Joe Gratton, Project Supervisor for Loyalist Township, at 613-386-7351, ext. 172.
