Construction Schedule and Stages (Nov., 2019)

The Brock St. Culvert Replacement project is removing the existing culvert that runs under Downtown Uxbridge and replacing it with a pair of twinned culverts. The existing culvert, sections of which are 120 years old, is in a state of failure and does not have enough capacity to prevent significant flooding in a major storm event. Here is an overview of the construction work taking place in November, 2019.
