HIGH RIVER, AB: At the July 13 meeting, Council approved the awarding of a contract for replacement of underground utilities on 4th Avenue SE to Shawne Excavating and Trucking. The work is part of the annual Street Replacement Program to repair and upgrade aging infrastructure including deep utilities, roads, and sidewalk and will begin in late July or early August.
In the 2020 Capital budget, 4th Avenue SE between 3rd and 5th Streets SE was identified as a priority for upgrades due to frequent water main breaks in recent years.
In addition to the deep utility upgrades:
> Services to residents will be replaced from the main to the property line
> The road surface will also be replaced.
> Sidewalks will be added on the north side of 4th Ave starting mid-block between 3rd and 4th Streets SE and continuing east to 5th Street SE.
Updates on road and sidewalk closures will be posted on the Town website and social media.
