Two segments of sanitary sewer main on 123 Avenue (228 Street to 227 Street) and on 227 Street at 124 Avenue are being upsized. The work generally consists of installation of 316m of 300mm gravity sewer, six new manholes and roadway restoration.
The contract has been awarded to Redline Excavating Ltd. and construction commenced in early January 2021 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of February 2021.
123 Avenue and 227 Street are expected to remain open to traffic throughout construction. However, a section of the sanitary sewer on 228 Street at 123 Avenue (to 20m south of the intersection) is to be installed in the middle of the road and this may require a short-term road closure. A traffic management plan will be in place if a closure is required and construction signage installed for alternate routes. The project supports Council’s Strategic Plan of growth by increasing sanitary sewer capacity allowing for growth and densification in the areas north of Dewdney Trunk Road from 227 Street to the west of 230 Street.
