Goodbye, Goodbye Construction Site
‘DOWN IN THE BIG CONSTRUCTION SITE, TOUGH TRUCKS WORK WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT.’
Saying goodbye to the warm weather also means the closing of another busy construction season. Every year the City sets out to work on a variety of new construction projects and multi-phased projects that enhance our roadways, utilities, buildings, recreational parks and facilities all while battling the changing weather that Alberta can face during the spring and summer months.
What have we accomplished this construction season? Here is a sample of projects that were completed in 2019:
- Approximately 80,000 square meters of micro-surface was applied to local, collector and arterial roadways for the 2019 Micro-Surfacing program.
- Boudreau Road between Beaverbrook Crescent and Sir Winston Churchill Avenue received a full re-construct and was paved with a premium asphalt called Stone Mastic Asphalt.
- The City made improvements at the intersection of St. Albert Trail and Boudreau Road/Giroux Road. An additional third lane was installed, along with safety camera relocation and upgrades. See the full list of completed work for St. Albert Trail and learn what is coming up for 2020.
- A new water main was installed along Sir Winston Churchill Avenue as part of the Water Network Service Upgrades.
- Three new raised pedestrian crossings were finished as part of the Erin Ridge Traffic Calming program.
- The design and installation of temporary traffic calming installations at three intersections on Lennox Drive were finalized.
- Three residential roadways in Deer Ridge were fully reconstructed: Doolan Place, Denault Place, Danforth Crescent.
- Asphalt trails, soccer fields, landscaping and site amenities for Joyal Park in Jensen Lakes was completed. The site is now open for public and school use.
- Ongoing construction is still taking place in Coal Mine Park, located in Erin Ridge North. Work includes a new trail, interpretive signage and site amenities such as benches and garbage cans. A pollinator garden is also being added, with landscaping. Construction should be wrapped by end of October, weather pending.
The City builds an interactive construction map every spring for residents to learn more about current construction projects. The map leads to the location of the project, details of the work being done and expected timelines. Stay tuned for the 2020 map!
Thank you to the residents of St. Albert for your patience and cooperation during our busy construction season.
