Road Improvement Program sees reconstructions for 2018

Cold Lake, AB – The Capital Road Improvement Program is hitting the ground running for 2018, with a few full reconstruction projects.

“As we continue moving forward with the program, we focus on streets that see a fair amount of traffic, or that can no longer wait to be repaired,” said City of Cold Lake’s Chief Administrative Officer Kevin Nagoya. “This year we have a few streets that require full reconstruction, so they took priority.”

The Capital Road Improvement Program is governed by road analytics software that analyzes the surface distress index of roadways and degradation curves to assist in making decisions on pavement resurfacing.

“Some of these projects required additional upgrades, such as sanitary and water systems, or storm drains and that was a big reason in why they were chosen,” said Nagoya. “Rebuilding a road in tandem with other infrastructure work allows us to get the most value for the money spent.”

The following areas are included in the 2018 Capital Road Improvement Program:

  • 53 Avenue (58 Street west) – full reconstruction with sanitary and water upgrades
  • 54 Avenue (55 Street to 54 Street) – full reconstruction with storm upgrades
  • 61 Avenue (47 Street west) – full reconstruction
  • Highway 28 (34 Avenue to South City Limits) - overlay

Construction on these areas is expected to be completed mid-September by E Construction.
