Impacts on off-leash parks:
  •  Hwy 22 off-leash park is reduced to approximately 10m wide area on the west side separated by fencing. See map.
  • portions of the small dog park south of Westrock Rd  and the fenced dog park at the bottom of the hill are closed during construction. See map.

Starting the week of Oct 14, crews are starting installation of the casing which may cause an increase in noise in the area. Work runs Mon-Sat, 8am-6pm. Welding and some other activities will work through the night during casing installation, but don’t generate much noise.

September 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.

Update Nov 18, 2019: The Town has completed the paving for a portion of the pedestrian pathway crossing at Horse Creek Road. We are currently waiting for CP Rail to complete the installation of the crossing gates before the crossing can be finished. Until the crossing gates are installed, the crossing will remain closed. For your safety, please continue to respect the signage in the area.

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 is expected to take about two years to complete. (A more detailed project timeline will be available once the design process is complete.)
