Sewer installation begins Monday along 53rd Avenue

Motorists should avoid sections of 53rd Avenue in Red Deer starting Monday, when crews will begin a month-long sanitary sewer installation.

Motorists should avoid sections of 53rd Avenue in Red Deer starting Monday, when crews will begin a month-long sanitary sewer installation.

The work is part of the Taylor Drive improvement project.

Crews will begin on the north end of 53rd Avenue and move south as work progresses.

The installation is divided into the following stages: north of 54th Street; 54th Street to 52nd Street; 52nd Street to approximately 125 metres south; and finally tie in the sewer line at Ross Street.

Each stage of the work is expected to take one week to complete, weather allowing. During construction, there will be no through access for vehicles.

Area businesses will remain open during the work, but there will be periods where vehicle access may be limited. There will be additional parking available. Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout.

The new sanitary sewer line will relieve some of the load on the existing line, while allowing for future development in Riverlands. For more information about the project, go to www.reddeer.ca/constructionseason.
