Cascade Place, McGonigle Heights, Riverview Drive

A sanitary main below the Cascade Place cul-de-sac is being replaced and realigned. Ultimately, this work will improve the flow of the area’s sanitary system. Preliminary work is set to begin the week of August 19 with site preparations, including tree removals with excavations. 

The main's alignment is being adjusted for improved maintenance access and safety. The project also includes directional drilling beneath Griffin Road, as well as deep trenching in the west boulevard along Riverview Drive, to install new pipe. 

We ask that pedestrians and cyclists in the area exercise caution while in the construction areas and that motorists drive with caution in the construction zones and adhere to all posted speed limits and traffic controls.

Roads
September 2019Horse Creek Road Pedestrian CrossingThe Town and CP are collectively working on the design of this crossing. Additional scope has been added to relocate some siding track that conflicts with the alignment of the crossing location. This conflict has a large impact on the safety of the crossing and CP is currently preparing a work plan to relocate the track. This crossing is a priority and will continue to be advanced in a timely way.

Update Sep 9, 2019: CP has notified the Town that they're finishing up a project in Calgary and that this project is next on their list. We've been given a timeline of mid- to late-September.

Hwy 1A/22 interchange

The 2017 provincial budget included funding to begin the process for building an interchange at Highway 1A and 22. Once design and engineering are complete, construction is expected to take about two years to complete. (A more detailed project timeline will be available once the design process is complete.)
