Sundre plans beautification project

Wider roads and landscaped boulevard are part of a two-year beautification project.

Town of Sundre is sprucing up a key thoroughfare as part of an estimated $2.2-million project.

Centre Street between 6A Ave. NE and 12th Ave. NE will be redeveloped as part of a two-year project, the town announced on Monday.

Wider lanes and a new regional pathway will be built and a new landscaped central boulevard developed. At the same time, the town will replace aging water and sewer lines, repave the road and add new sidewalks.

The town expects to begin work in May 2017 and be completed by the fall 2018. It is the first project of its kind undertaken in the town and is expected to improve traffic flow as well as beautify the area.

Tendering will take place once engineering work is complete.
