Hamlet of Richmond Reconstruction

Project Description

The County of Elgin, in partnership with the Municipality of Bayham, is undertaking the reconstruction of Heritage Line (County Road 38) and Richmond Road (County Road 43) within the Hamlet of Richmond settlement limits.

The project will include the replacement of storm sewers and road structure replacement complete with curbs, asphalt and concrete sidewalk extension on Richmond Road.  The road will be returned to base course asphalt in 2022, and the final surface course of asphalt will be placed in Spring 2023. 

Construction Phasing

The Hamlet of Richmond Reconstruction project will be completed in two phases, with Phase 1 being completed in its entirety prior to construction commencing on Phase 2. Phase 1 is Heritage Line within the Hamlet limits and a portion of Richmond Road, this will allow for through traffic to return to Heritage while Phase 2 Richmond Road is completed.

Construction Detour
