Construction wrapping up for the year on streetscape revitalization project

After a couple of busy months, construction work will soon be wrapping up on the streetscape revitalization project in Spruce Grove’s City Centre and there will be two-way traffic and full pedestrian access to all businesses at all times during the winter months.

Most of the underground work is done for this year, with some very minor underground work to be completed in 2023.

Irrigation work has been completed and all the soil cells have been installed and are being filled with soil.

This picture shows what the soil cells look like under the road and sidewalks before they are filled with the soil. These cells help keep the soil from compacting and impacting tree roots. They also allow water to get into the soil and not affect the road or sidewalk structure.

Surface work has started, and crews are working quickly to get the roadways paved and open for the winter months. The west side of McLeod Avenue and the north side of Main Street have been paved and the remaining open roadways will be paved the last week of October.

The goal for the remainder of October is to finish the required concrete curbing to allow the roadways to be paved during the warmer weather. Concrete work will also continue into November, including sidewalks, the median wall, benches and decorative brick sections. This will involve heating and tarping, so areas will still need to be closed off to protect those sections from vandalism and keep workers safe as they will not have the same visibility of their surroundings.

Work will continue in a way to allow the roadways and sidewalks to be fully open to vehicles and pedestrians as they are completed. There will also continue to be full pedestrian access.

Businesses in the City Centre remain open during the construction and the community is encouraged to continue supporting them throughout this temporary disruption in the area. Please check out this site for information and an interactive map to find parking and local shops in the area.
