City to Begin 2016 Street Improvement Program

Lloydminster, AB/SK – Lloydminster City Council has awarded the tender for the 2016 Street Improvement Program (SIP), paving the way for work to begin in early June.

During the regular meeting of City Council on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 council approved the award of the 2016 SIP tender to ASL Paving for a cost of $2,962,049.37.

The 2016 SIP consists of work at 22 locations throughout the City and includes sidewalk repairs, curb and gutter repairs, walking path upgrades, intersection rehabilitations, roadway patching and addition of turning lanes.

“With a large number of improvement projects planned this season, we are asking for the patience and cooperation of Lloydminster and area motorists as we complete this important work,” said Terry Burton, Director of Planning and Engineering. “We also ask that drivers exercise a high level of caution near worksites to ensure the safety of workers and other drivers in these areas.”

Highlights from the 2016 SIP include:
- Arterial intersection upgrades at 67 Street and 75 Avenue
- Arterial intersection upgrades at 44 Street and 40 Avenue
- Arterial intersection upgrades at 29 Street and 50 Avenue
- Arterial intersection upgrades at 25 Street and 50 Avenue
- Expansion of the parking lot at Russ Robertson Arena
- Intersection improvements at 35 Street and 65 Avenue
- Patch repair and overlay on 25 Street, from 50 Avenue to 57A Avenue

Seasonal work for the 2016 SIP is expected to conclude in late September 2016.

Affected residences and businesses will be notified of any work in their neighbourhood. Signage will be posted near the affected streets and intersections to notify motorists of construction. Motorists are advised that reduced traffic lanes, detours, barriers and temporary road closures will be in effect, pending the stage of road construction at key streets and intersections. Motorists are reminded to allow extra time for travel, to slow down when driving in construction zones and obey all signs, detours and barriers.

Lloydminster streets are evaluated annually for needed repairs and upgrades. Annual maintenance and upgrading is an important part of improving the safety and extending the life of the City’s roadways.

Project updates will be posted to the City’s Facebook page, Twitter account and website at http://www.lloydminster.ca
