Summer 2019Horse Creek Road Pedestrian CrossingThe Town and CP are collectively working on the design of this crossing. Additional scope has been added to relocate some siding track that conflicts with the alignment of the crossing location. This conflict has a large impact on the safety of the crossing and CP is currently preparing a work plan to relocate the track. This crossing is a priority and will continue to be advanced in a timely way. Early indication from CP is that the project implementation will now be delayed until the spring of 2019 while design details are finalized.Roads

Hwy 1A/22 interchange

The 2017 provincial budget included funding to begin the process for building an interchange at Highway 1A and 22. Once design and engineering are complete, construction could begin as early as fall 2019, and is expected to take about two years to complete. (A more detailed project timeline will be available once the design process is complete.)
