Work for the project began in September 2019. The overall project completion date has been delayed until the end of October 2020.
The project experienced delays while rehabilitating the manhole in the intersection of Groat Road and 111 Avenue. Difficult ground conditions were encountered which required us to perform ground stabilization work that was not planned for in the original schedule.
Additionally, navigating developments associated with COVID-19 caused further delays to the project.
The trunk line continues to collect water from city streets while work is underway. For safety reasons, when the flow of water in the storm line gets too high from snow melt or rain, we'll stop work until water levels recede. There were a significant number of days to-date where weather prevented work to continue in the trunk line. Because the project is highly weather dependent, exact dates for work and traffic impacts can't be given.

We will take every precaution to protect public safety in this area. The construction areas will be fenced and/or marked as restricted areas. However, we also need your help in obeying all traffic and pedestrian closures and keeping children and pets a safe distance from the construction site and equipment.
Regular working hours at all work sites are from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Saturday. These hours may be extended in cases of emergency.
All affected landscaping, pavements, sidewalks and alleyways will be restored to their original condition. Permanent road and surface restoration will be scheduled and completed once construction has been completed.
