New railway sidewalk constructed on 51 Street

An old decrepit sidewalk on 51 Street downtown Stettler is being replaced with a new sidewalk with a railway design.

A sidewalk with a theme – Workers are completing the reconstructed sidewalks by putting a rail design on the ground.

An old decrepit sidewalk on 51 Street downtown Stettler is being replaced with a new sidewalk with a railway design.

Construction crews continue to work on the new sidewalk, curb and gutter on the east side of the street between 49 Avenue and 50 Avenue under a local improvement program.

“It was supported over a year ago by the businesses on the east side of the street,” said town manager Rob Stoutenberg.

Budgeted at $172,470, $55,000 will be paid by the affected property owners while the balance will be paid by the town.

The project will be to a lesser extent than the work at the north end of Main Street, said Stoutenberg.

“We expect it to be completed in two weeks.”

“It will definitely be an improvement, “said Stoutenberg, considering that the old sidewalk was quite dilapidated.

New curbs will also improve drainage in the area, he noted.

Just the east side of the street will be upgraded.

Work on reconstruction the north end of Main Street continues to level the road surface with the curb and gutter.

“We expect this work to be completed by the end of October,” said Stoutenberg.

Busy with upgrading roads, the town repaired several other areas of road recently at a cost of around $110,000.

“We did a lot of work,” said Stoutenberg.

That also included concrete work on the service road in front of No Frills grocery store between 51 Street and 55 Street after work was completed to install new storm drain and water and sewer crossings under 50 Avenue (Highway 12).
