Quick Construction Update (September 8/16)

Here is a quick update on the construction underway in West Fernie.

To date, the underground works are complete (so only road gravels and paving remain) in the following streets:  Eckersley, Commons, Hesketh, Colclough, McLeod, McDonald, Mill and a portion of Riverside.  Dawson will be moving to complete the underground in Wilson and the rest of Riverside next before moving to Hand Ave.

Roadworks are now underway.  Dawson has started in Eckersley and plans to move into McDonald tomorrow.

Behind the scenes, Phase 2 design work continues.  The intent is to tender this winter and have construction start in the spring of 2017.
