Background on the project
The final negotiated agreement between the Province and Tsuu T’ina for the SW Ring Road included the abandonment of one of The City’s existing storm sewer trunks that crosses through the Tsuu T’ina Nation lands, and replacing it with a new storm sewer trunk to be located within the Transportation and Utility Corridor (TUC) and 37th Street S.W. Right-of-Way. Water Resources will undertake this work with funding provided by Alberta Transportation (AT). Alberta Transportation has stipulated that the work must be completed by June 2016. This means that the construction must start in the spring of 2015, and last a period of one year with the expectation that there will be some follow up work to address items such as landscaping, etc.
Current project status
- Water Resources is in the process of retaining an engineering consultant for design and construction management of this project.
- They are in the preliminary stages of the work.
Minimizing the impacts to residents is a priority
- We recognize that this project will have impacts to the residents and businesses in the vicinity, due to the work being undertaken along 37 Street S.W.
- Limiting the extent of disruption is an important part of our project planning
- As a part of the design process, Water Resources will investigate several feasible options to ensure that the impacts are minimized.
- This includes flow through of traffic in and out of the community.
We are committed to keeping the community informed
Water Services will engage my office and the community on the project options and make reasonable effort to take into consideration any other concerns that may arise.
We are all committed to keeping the community informed during this project and Waters Services is planning for an open house in the community once the preliminary design is complete (date TBD).
