City of Lacombe announces Westview Stairs to complete trail in lands west of Fairway Heights

Council approved the award of a contract to Timcon Construction

Council approved the award of a contract to Timcon Construction for the detailed design and construction of a stairway trail connector for the Fairway Heights Willow Ridge Network. The approval of the $102,825 project, including a 10% contingency, falls well within the budgeted amount of $200,000.

“Council is excited to finalize this project as it will greatly improve the connectivity for this well used trail,” said Mayor Grant Creasey. “Improving our city recreational assets aligns well with our commitment to making Lacombe a more walkable community and enhancing our underutilized property.”

At their January 27, 2020 meeting Council approved this project with the inclusion of a natural trail, with loops at both the north and south ends creating a figure “8” out in both directions from the stairway. The project will add one trail linkage and fitness feature similar to existing trails elsewhere within the city.

“Trail users visiting this area really appreciate the immersive natural experience,” said Director of Community Services Deborah Juch. “These new stairs and trail connection will preserve that and add to the City’s extensive system.”

Work on this project will being this summer and is expected to be completed by the fall.
