City Engineering Summer Work in Full Swing
MOOSE JAW - A number of City Engineering programs are underway for the summer. These programs total more than $2.9 M and are aimed at reinforcing our infrastructure, making our streets smoother and our sidewalks safer for residents and tourists to our City.
- The $800,000 sewer relining and manhole restoration projects have begun in the north east section of the City (Happy Valley) and in South Hill (Maple Street). The purpose of these projects is to structurally reinforce the existing sewer trunk, which will restore the sewer pipe to near-new condition and last for approximately 50 years. Residents may notice large equipment in the area, a mild plastic odor and steam at the site.
- The Road Resurfacing Program ($1.4 M) continues this week at Redland Street (from Saskatchewan to MacDonald) and on Algoma (Saskatchewan to MacDonald). Note this may affect parking and driving around the SaskPolytech campus on Saskatchewan – students and staff are encouraged to plan alternate routes as construction continues in this area.
- The sidewalk replacement program continues with more than 100 locations identified throughout the City. This is a $735,000 project aimed at making our sidewalks safer and more accessible. Downtown locations and properties with updated service connections are priority areas for this project.
As with all projects, safety comes first. City Engineering reminds residents and children to stay a safe distance from equipment and to slow down when passing crews. Pedestrians and drivers are asked to obey barricades and detour signs to ensure safety of workers in the area.
