Residents are advised that as part of the City of Lacombe’s West Area Servicing Project, a new water main will be installed along Highway 12/50 Avenue, connecting to a water supply line in 58 Street.

In order to facilitate the necessary tie-in work, 58 Street will be closed from 50 Avenue to 51 Avenue, with 56 Street used as an alternate traffic route. Residential vehicle access south of 51 Avenue will be provided from 51 Avenue/58 Street, as shown in the blue area of the map (overleaf).

The tentative schedule for construction start is on May 6, 2019, and work is anticipated to last one week, pending weather and successful installation.

In addition to the 58 Street road closure, a double-lane closure on Highway 12/50 Avenue is required from 63 Street to 30 meters east of 58 Street as shown in the orange area of the map. East and west through-traffic will be maintained using the two eastbound lanes. On street parking along 50 Avenue and 58 Street will be restricted to outside the orange working area.

During construction period, please keep a safe distance from the worksite and the equipment. The contractor will take every precaution to protect the public, but needs your assistance with keeping everyone safe.

Construction hours will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Sunday and evening work may be required as weather and schedule requirements dictate. In these circumstances, workers will adhere to the City’s Noise Bylaw.

Please obey posted signs and flag persons. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in order to accommodate this construction period. For more information about this project, go to www.lacombe.ca/construction.
