So now that the deal's done and the new southwest berm in High River is a go, what's next?

High River Mayor Craig Snodgrass says before they can get a shovel in the ground, it needs to pass environmental muster.

"That was actually done before and was vetted through the Province before we went through the expropriation process. So, that will be re-submitted, it shouldn't take long for them to go through, and then we go to public consultation and get the environmental approvals done. We expect that we're in the ground with construction, probably next Spring."

Snodgrass says the delay with the Province is because they're backed up with other reviews and they have to wait their turn like everyone else.

Snodgrass says once they actually get the shovels in the ground, it'll only take about 12 to 14 weeks to complete.
