Construction along Woodland and Fairway drives

Construction in this area is planned for the week of March 25, 2019

Residents are advised that as part of the City of Lacombe’s West Area Servicing Project, a new sanitary main, connecting to the existing sanitary main at the west end of Woodland Drive, will be installed today. Work in this area (see photo below) is anticipated to last two to three days (weather permitting). The gravel access road will be closed as part of this phase of construction.

Residents are also advised that a new water main, connecting to a water supply line on 58 Street, will be installed along Fairway Drive. At this time, only the connection shown in orange in the photo below will be installed. Another notice will be issued before the remainder of the water main is installed later this spring.

Construction in this area is planned for the week of March 25, 2019, and work is anticipated to take one week (weather permitting). Road closures and detours will be place, with Garden Road as an alternate access. On-street parking and driveway access within the work area will be restricted during construction.

The public is asked to keep a safe distance from the construction site and the equipment. The contractor will take every precaution to protect the public, but needs your assistance.

Hours of construction are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Sunday work and evening work may also be required as weather and schedule requirements dictate. In these circumstances, the municipal noise bylaw will be adhered to.

The City will provide ongoing information to residents in the coming weeks to advise of other phases of work that require parking restrictions and road or lane closures. For more information about the West Area Project, go to
