Whissell Contracting has now started work on stage one of the Western Irrigation District (WID) Cooperative Stormwater Management Project south of Chestermere Lake.
The work will be focused in the canal areas near Range Road 282 and Kinniburgh Blvd., and the project includes excavation, removal of material, and the installation of new stormwater management materials.
Due to the nature of this work, crews will be closing access to the small gravel road/pathway that runs along the south of the lake wall between both canals until May 30.
Crews will also be partially closing access to the pedestrian pathway that runs along the top of the lake wall between both canals between March 1-5.
The gravel access road north of the intersection of Kinniburgh Blvd. and Range Road 282 will be closed until April 11. Note that Kinniburgh Blvd. bridge access will not be affected and there will still be access to the lake from the northeast side using Sandpiper Lane.
Construction will take place during the hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Phase one of the project is anticipated to be complete by April 11, 2021.
Commuters and pedestrians are asked to slow down, obey all posted signage and use additional caution when travelling through the area.
