Summer progress update and fall look ahead
July and August were busy months for the streetscape revitalization project in the Spruce Grove City Centre area.
Much of the focus has been on underground work in the area, including new water main and sanitary sewer line installation and some storm water tie-ins. Some surface work has also started, including the removal of some sidewalks, and grading and graveling for new sidewalks.
These underground upgrades will support service to existing businesses and residents, while also creating opportunity for new development.
Moving into September, the underground work and installation of deep utilities will be completed in the coming weeks, and more surface work will begin along with the installation of the soil cells, electrical conduit, and remaining irrigation.
There will be some temporary access disruptions while the road and sidewalks are brought up to the proper elevation, and again when the concrete is poured. Impacted businesses will be notified if they will be affected by this work.
There will be some intersection interruptions at McLeod Avenue and King Street, as well as at Main Street and Church Avenue, to connect the newly installed mains to the existing lines.
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.
