Project Update


  • Associated work through Feb 2018 - October 24, 2017

    Crews will be conducting the following construction activities at isolated work areas along 52 Street and 12 Avenue from November 2017 through February 2018:

    • Excavate and construct the underground valve chamber just north of Imperial Gate. 
    • Conduct pressure tests to ensure tightness of pipe joints and disinfect the new water main. 
    • Perform municipal and regional water main connections, known as tie-ins, at connection points. 
    • Restore the affected areas.

    There will be intermittent traffic impacts along 52 Street and 12 Avenue associated with these activities. However, impacts are expected to be minimal and localized. Please obey signage and directions from traffic control personnel.

  • Water main installation until late Nov 2017 - October 24, 2017

    The water main installation along 52 Street is now complete from south of Highway 17 to Belair Avenue and crews are progressing south towards 12 Avenue into late November 2017. All traffic passing through this section along 52 Street will be single-lane alternating.
