Phase 1 Marler Drive Project

Beginning May 17, 2023, and going through until October, Marler Drive, from Parkview Drive to Mt. Pleasant Drive, will be undergoing major reconstruction.

First, there will be a full replacement of the underground water, storm and sanitary main lines including new services to each property line. Following the underground utility replacements, the roadway will be reconstructed with new gravel, asphalt pavement, concrete curb and gutter, and separate sidewalk. In addition, the landscaped boulevard will be rehabilitated following construction with new sod where required.

This important project is significant for Camrose and will result in traffic disruptions for the majority of the 2023 construction season. Please abide by the construction signage as contractors diligently work to complete this project.

OCTOBER 17TH UPDATE

  • Marler Drive has now reopened to traffic.
  • Landscaping will begin soon.

Stoney Creek Sinkhole / Storm Sewer Repair

Project Details
The City of Camrose observed a sink hole developing on the surface above an existing storm sewer within the Stoney Creek ravine slope. Upon further investigation, the storm pipe has suffered a structural failure. The City has engaged a contractor to remove the failed pipe and replace with new pipe.

The project includes the excavation, removal and replacement of 130m of storm pipe and three manholes within the Camrose Creek ravine slope. The project is challenging due to the deep storm pipe installation, large diameter pipe and work on a slope.

Area Impacted
Construction will take place within the Stoney Creek ravine south of 39 Avenue and east of Parkview Drive.

Proposed Start Date / End Date
October 2, 2023 - October 31, 2023
(Some site restoration work, including trail repaving, will be completed in Spring 2024.)

Contractor
Nu Edge Construction

What to Expect
Construction Access and Safety

  • Construction and trail closure signage will be placed as required.
  • Contractor access to the work area will be via Parkview Drive through the community gardens.
  • The contractor will be using an area between the community gardens and the work area for storage of equipment and materials.
  • Portions of the paved and grassed trails will be closed to allow the contractor to complete their work in a safe manner.
  • Through the above measures, the City and its contractor will be working together to ensure the safety of workers, community garden users, trail users, the general public and adjacent residents.

Construction Hours and Noise

  • Increased construction traffic and construction noise is anticipated for the duration of the project.
  • Construction activities are generally planned to be from 7:30am to 5:00pm, Monday to Saturday until the project is complete. The contractor will ensure that no construction activities will happen between 11:00pm and 7:00am, in accordance with the City’s Nuisance Abatement Bylaw.
