City of Cranbrook lists 2013 roads projects

Cranbrook is spending $3 million on roads this summer, going towards four projects.

Cranbrook is spending $3 million on roads this summer, going towards four projects.

City council approved the 2013 capital roads program at its regular July 15 meeting.

Just over $2.6 million of the budget comes from the city’s general fund; $783,000 comes from the road improvement tax residents pay with property taxes; $400,000 is coming from the city’s water and sewer funds.

Without further ado, here is the list:

• 14th Avenue South from 13th Street to 17th Street South will receive stormwater system improvements; concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk installation; street lighting; removal and replacement of road base material and repaving including intersections; installation of multi-use pathway and bioswale.

• The frontage road will be extended beside Highway 3 from the new Denham Ford site to Kootenay Granite. The project includes stormwater system construction and improvements; sanitary sewer extension; curb, gutter, sidewalk and landscaping installation; removing and replacing road base material as warranted; reconstructing and paving the remainder of the frontage road.

• 4th Street NW and Hurry Avenue will have a retaining wall constructed, storm water improvements and intersection improvements.

• Improvements will be made to Kootenay Street from Victoria Avenue to 18A Avenue North. This portion of Kootenay Street is to be rebuilt with some pavement removal and the asphalt replaced.

The city has also set aside some of the budget to perform three drainage improvement projects: one at 11th Street South and Innes Avenue; one at 7th Street NW and Cranbrook Street; and one in the alley behind Baker Street near the Green Clinic. Geotechnical work for all three projects is completed and final design work is nearing completion.

“The city encourages residents and motorists to please use caution when travelling through any construction zone. Please respect the posted speed, traffic control and detour signage and/or the direction of traffic control personnel for the duration. The City apologizes for any inconvenience this construction work may cause,” said corporate communications officer Chris Zettel in a media release.
