101 Street Trunk Upgrades
The south contract between 90 Avenue to 98 Avenue on 101 Street has been awarded to Wapiti Gravel Suppliers. This phase will replace the existing 375 millimetre wastewater line with a 750 millimetre line. Water mains and services will also be replaced at the same time. The kick-off meeting took place on May 11 and construction started on June 5, 2023. This phase of the project became substantially complete on November 3, 2023. Only seasonal deficiencies remain for the 2024 construction season.
The north contract between 102 Avenue to 108 Avenue, on 102 Street, is scheduled for construction in 2025/2026.
Decommissioning of the Avondale sub-trunk across Bear Creek will take place tentatively in 2025 and the replacement of the sanitary main on 108 Avenue between 100 Street and 102 Street will take place in 2026. This project will reduce the risk of raw effluent being discharged into Bear Creek by eliminating the sanitary crossing across the Bear River (Creek) Reservoir (Reliability/Risk Management) and support redevelopment and densification within the Central Business District and North Avondale areas (Growth).
