Phase 2 Neighbourhood Renewal Project Update

Phase 2 Neighbourhood Renewal Project Update

Posted October 10, 2019

Please be advised that the Town of Peace River, Velocity Group and Ruel Bros. Contracting will be wrapping up the 2019 construction season. We appreciate your patience and co-operation during this Project. Recent delays with respect to Town water system on 106th Avenue, would have meant leaving the local site in an unsatisfactory and unsafe condition for winter. Thus, the decision was made to not proceed with underground work this fall.

Please note the following items that must be completed in current Project areas:

103rd Street (115th to 118th Avenue)

  • Streetlight installations by ATCO Electric (Fall/Winter 2019), clean up in Spring 2020
  • Private Sanitary Sewer Service cleaning and CCTV videos (Fall 2019)

  • Completion of landscaping repairs and cleanup (this week)

  • Landscaping repairs (Fall pending weather or Spring 2020)
  • Private Sanitary Sewer Service cleaning and CCTV videos (Fall 2019)

106th Avenue (101st to 103rd Street)

  • All construction works will resume in the Spring of 2020
  • Disturbed road areas will have crushed traffic gravel installed
  • Equipment and materials will be demobilized
  • ATCO Electric has been notified for re-installation of old streetlights

Other items to note:

  • All streets will be reopened to the Public in October. Garbage and recycling pickup and routes will be back to normal schedules.
  • Private Sanitary Sewer Service lining, if requested, will be completed in 2020 (excludes 106th Avenue). Videos will be made available for review Fall 2019.
