About the Project

This construction project will remove the existing culvert that runs under Brock St. W. and replace it with a pair of twinned culverts. The existing culvert is in a state of failure and does not have enough capacity to prevent significant flooding in a major storm event.

The new, wider culvert will greatly reduce the impact of flooding in the downtown. Many properties in the downtown core will no longer be in the flood plain when the culvert project is finished.

Follow our progress as we install culvert sections. Latest update June, 2021.

Crews have completed installing culvert sections for the entire high-flow and low-flow culvert through the entire length of the project and the Brook is now flowing through the Culvert.  Crews will be completing restoration work on the surrounding area through June 2021. Centennial Dr. will remain closed until it is rebuilt in mid-June.

As of June 2021, 100% of the culvert has been installed. Crews are working to rebuild and restore the areas adjacent to the construction as the last step in the process.

Interested in the steps used to replace and install the new culverts?

This video explains each step along the way.

The Township of Uxbridge has committed to keeping everyone informed and connected throughout the project. We will provide regular Communication updates throughout the project as well as maps and information about parking, road closures and detour routes.

The History

The culvert is a critical piece of infrastructure located beneath Brock Street West (Lower Brock Street). The culvert is old and requires replacement. Historical records of flooding in downtown Uxbridge have been documented since 1932. Flood modelling studies confirm that, should a significant weather event such as Hurricane Hazel occur, a significant flood hazard exists for land adjacent to the Uxbridge Brook, particularly along Bascom St and along Brock St. W.
