Significant Construction Season Brings Improvements and Benefits to the Community

November 6, 2020

HIGH RIVER, AB: The Town would like to thank residents for their patience during a significant construction season that is now coming to an end.

The work done to date has brought important improvements to the safety, efficiency, and attractiveness of our community. The projects include final steps in the Town’s flood mitigation work, road reconstruction, completion of paving in many areas, utilities replacement and relocation plus improvements to pathways and sidewalks throughout Town.

“Summer road construction is never easy, especially when it disrupts our businesses as it did this year on Centre street”, says Mayor Craig Snodgrass. “Thank you to our residents and businesses for your patience during construction. Thanks also go to contractors and their staff who worked through rain, snow, cold and heat – while dealing with the restrictions of a pandemic. Excellent job in getting our roads opened up prior to winter.”

Projects included:

  • SW Dike – the last piece in the Town’s post 2013 dike network
  • 12th Avenue SW and Happy Trails Reconstruction
  • Centre Street Reconstruction – 2nd Avenue to 7th Avenue
  • Centre Street Utilities Relocation – Macleod Trail to 10th Avenue
  • Northwest Sanitary Decommissioning and Lift Station Project (High Country Drive)
  • 4th Avenue SE Underground Utilities Replacement (continuing in 2021)
  • Final lift of pavement on 6th Avenue SE, 7th Avenue SE, 10th Avenue SE, and 11th Avenue SE
  • Pedestrian Improvement Project – upgrades to pathways & sidewalks throughout the Town
  • Recycling Centre Paving
  • Fortis – upgrades to improve the reliability of the Town’s street lighting and power distribution network

“Now everyone can reap the benefits of the busy season behind us,” added Mayor Snodgrass. “As Council prepares the 2021 budget, discussions include funding for major projects in the coming year. Maintaining and upgrading the Town’s infrastructure is an ongoing priority. This important work keeps High River looking great and ensures safe, quality services for our residents.”
