Road work in the Town of High River will be starting up on Wednesday, May 9.

The Town's replacing the sanitary sewer main and water main on 4th Avenue S.E. between 1st Street S.E. and 3rd Street S.E. and installing a storm sewer main on 4th Avenue S.E.

It will last from six to eight weeks as part of the Town of High River’s ongoing infrastructure replacement program.

This project will also include the replacement of sewer and water services to the property line as well as the road surface, various sections of curb, gutter and sidewalk.

Water and sanitary services will not be affected, with the exception of a short period of time when service lines are re-established to the new mains.

Access to the front entrances of the properties on 4th Avenue S.E. will not be available while the road surface is being replaced. The Town and PME Inc. ask that residents use their back lane access where possible.

Garbage collection will not be affected and garbage bins/carts can be placed as normal.
