2020 Construction Season

We're busy planning projects for the upcoming construction season. Construction schedules are always weather-dependent and could be subject to change without notice.

Current Projects

Gaetz Avenue and 32 Street Intersection
Storm main replacement/Pavement rehabilitation

Environmental Services is working to replace the water main along 32 Street from Gaetz Avenue to 49 Avenue. Temporary lane and road closures will affect traffic in the area at varying times. Current information about lane and road closures are always available on our Traffic Impact Map.

Crews will be paving sections of this intersection as part of the Pavement Rehabilitation Program in mid-July.

Construction began in late June and is expected to wrap up in mid to late October.

32 Street and Piper Creek
Bridge rehabilitation

The bridge over Piper Creek on 32 Street will be undergoing a major rehabilitation to repair deteriorated elements on the bridge and improve sightlines and congestion points for trail users. Construction is set to begin July 13 and be complete at the end of October. 

During construction, intermittent lane closures will be required along 32 Street. The Devonian Trail will be detoured for the duration of construction.

Signs will be in place to notify drivers and pedestrians of detours and closures. Traffic delays are expected while this work is underway. Drivers are reminded to slow down when driving in construction zones and obey all signs. All road construction is weather dependent and schedules may be subject to change.

Tentative construction timeline: Mid-July to October

Future projects

43A Avenue and 50A Street
Water main replacements

Environmental Services is working to replace the water mains on 43A Avenue and 50A Street. Temporary lane and road closures will affect traffic in the area at varying times. Current information about lane and road closures are always available on our Traffic Impact Map.

Kerry Wood Drive
Power Line Replacement

The power poles and power lines along Kerry Wood Drive have reached the end of their useful life and will be replaced this year. Electric Light & Power crews will be working to upgrade this part of the electrical distribution system.

The existing power poles, located on the south side of Kerry Wood Drive near the escarpment over Great Chief Park, are not easily accessible and pose challenges for crews when repairs and maintenance are required. To resolve this issue, the old infrastructure will be removed and rebuilt in the same location as the existing service poles which are opposite homes along the residential back alley.

Timeline: This project is expected to begin in late August and will take approximately two months to complete.

Resident impacts: Localized power outages will be required at key stages of the project, but these outages are typically short in duration, likely less than 10 minutes. We will make every effort to ensure residents are informed of all planned outages in advance.
