Ward 11 News: Sanitary Improvement Project in Altadore

  • Share

Ward 11 official website
Upgrades are required to existing water infrastructure in the community of Altadore to help mitigate localized flooding, and to accommodate future development in the Currie Barracks area.
This project will occur in three phases to upgrade the sanitary main along 14 Street S, 38 Avenue SW and Sifton Boulevard to increase flood resilience in the area and continue to provide a high level of sanitary service while our city grows.

It is important to note that schedules may change depending on a number of factors, including approvals, weather, soil conditions and other items that could affect construction.

UPDATE October 18, 2016

The w
ork on Sifton Blvd has been extended due to the unexpected discovery of previously abandoned infrastructure. Pipes that are more than a half-century old have been found, demanding a change of the previous work-plan. This discovery has added a significant amount of work: please be patient, the crews are doing their very best to complete the project in a timely manner.​

Project Details

 Approximately 323 meters of 900mm (36 inch) diameter pipe and approximately 116 metres of 600mm (24 inch) diameter pipe will be installed.

 Open-cut excavation will be used for this project, meaning the entire section of road will be excavated.

 During construction a by-pass sanitary system will be installed so service is not disrupted.

• North Star Contracting will be completing the work on behalf of Water Services.

• The work will be completed in three phases to accommodate traffic in the area. See the map of the back of this notice for the three phases.


Construction Impacts

 Road closures will be required along 14 Street S, 38 Avenue S.W. and Sifton Boulevard to accommodate the work.

 Traffic detours and signage will be in place.

 To minimize the impacts to traffic, the work will be completed in three phases to allow for detours.

 There will be some temporary sanitary service disruptions as a by-pass system is installed and removed – all impacted households will be notified in advance.

 Lay down areas for construction equipment will be within the road right-of-way.

 Noise and dust impacts will be monitored to fall within bylaw limits.

 Work hours are Monday to Sunday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
