SW Dike Completion: Construction of the SW dike is scheduled for completion by the end of October. Mayor Craig Snodgrass noted that the SW Dike is the last step in the Town’s flood mitigation project. “This project was a massive undertaking. Kudos to the contractor Kidco and thank you to residents for their patience.” There is no public access to the SW dike as it is located on private farmland. As part of the easement and purchase agreement, the Town agreed to restrict access to the dike to ensure everyone’s safety.
12th Avenue Update: The 12th Avenue Reconstruction Project is drawing to a close. 12th Avenue SW is tentatively set to reopen to traffic on Saturday, October 24 (weather permitting). This project has seen a significant upgrade of the road and adjoining Happy Trails, along with relocation of important utilities. It was originally scheduled for 2021 but the progress made on the SW Dike allowed it to be completed this year.
Centre Street Project: Centre Street and 7th Avenue have both reopened to traffic, but residents may encounter traffic delays as the project wraps up. Crews are completing work on concrete, landscaping, streetlight installations and power pole removals.
