Project status – February, 2024

The final segment of Phase B construction is scheduled to begin in March 2024 and involve the following:

  • Constructing 2.2 km of 1650 mm sanitary sewer trunk from 64 Av NE to north of Beddington Trail alongside Nose Creek.
  • Improving stormwater infrastructure in Laycock Park by repairing an Oil-Grit Separator and installing a high flow bypass around it.
  • Improving drainage and park features by installing a rain garden, parking lot, and pathway connection.
  • Repairing and upgrading the Outfall N31 access road and the adjacent riverbank.

Upcoming construction timelines

  • March 2024 – Q2 2025: Sanitary sewer pipe tunnelling. Construction sites for tunnelling shafts will be setup (A) south of Beddington Trail NE beside the Nose Creek Pathway, (B) in Laycock Park beside 64 Av NE, and (C) at the Beddington Trail NE and Deerfoot Trail interchange near Nose Creek.
  • Q3 2024 – Q3 2025: Laycock Park drainage improvements, located within the park on both sides of Nose Creek.
  • Q1 2025 – Q3 2025: Sanitary sewer pipe excavation at Beddington Trail NE and Deerfoot Trail, east of Deerfoot Trail.
  • Q2 2025 – Q3 2028: Landscape restoration scheduled at multiple locations, where required.

Construction impacts

  • Construction hours are:
    • 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday
    • 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday
  • Residents will notice construction noise.
  • Residents may notice an increase in vibrations while crews are working, but we do not anticipate any impacts to private property.
  • Park users may notice diesel odours where crews are working with large equipment.
  • Residents and pedestrians are reminded to watch for detour signs, and please obey all temporary speed limit reductions that may be in place. We also ask that drivers in the lane closest to a stopped roadside worker vehicle with its lights flashing move over to the far lane to give workers extra space, if possible.
  • The contractor will take steps to limit the amount of dust and mud from the work area.
  • Nose Creek in-stream work during Q4 2024 will restrict boating and fishing activities in Laycock Park.
