DOWNTOWN CONSTRUCTION STARTS MONDAY APRIL10

First St rendering

Construction season in Cochrane starts next week with the first stage of work on Main Street.

The construction is part of the Historic Downtown enhancement project, which includes trees and benches along First Street, as well as a new gateway feature on Fifth Avenue north of the tracks.

Suzanne Gaida, Senior Manager, Community Services says by doing the work one block at a time, disruption will be minimized in the area.

“There will be construction fencing and barricades around the work locations, but we’re working with downtown businesses to make sure there is clear access to their doors and signage so customers know they’re open for business as usual,” says Gaida.

The work starts April 10 on the north side of First Street between First and Second Avenue. Each block is scheduled to take approximately three weeks.


Work includes the installation of wooden benches, planter boxes and locations for trees that use Silva Cells — a specialized underground system to support large tree growth.
