St. Julien Road Reconstruction - September 9 Update
In the week ahead
Last week we continued installing the rock retaining walls the length of the road and gravel installation and compaction.
Work continued on trenching for the electrical conduit installation for streetlights. Several of the deep concrete forms were installed for the street pole bases.
The crews resolved the conflict with shallow utility lines at the intersection with St. Julien Way.
Extended hours this weekend
In order to make up lost time, the construction company has been given permission to work extended work hours this weekend. They will start at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 10, and the work will involve pouring concrete for curbs and gutters. The crews will also work on Sunday, September 11, from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., but the Sunday work will be limited to workers extending the markers and guides for the concrete pouring to resume on Monday.
On weekdays, construction activity continues to be permitted until 9 p.m., as with all construction sites.
, the workers will continue building the rock retaining wall, extending gravel installation and compaction. The most disruptive work is the pouring of concrete to set the curbs and gutters.All properties lose access for curb installation
The pouring of concrete curbs and gutters involves cement trucks extruding the forms in continuous segments up the road. Concrete requires several days to cure before any vehicles are allowed on the concrete. No vehicles are allowed on St. Julien Road and residents are asked to step over the curbs and gutters. If any vehicles or pedestrians go on the concrete curbs and gutters before it is cured, the work will have to be redone.This work will completely close vehicle access to private driveways for several days during and after the concrete is poured - see red on matrix schedule below.
Please take note of the closure dates and locations, which may be subject to weather conditions.
Property owners are encouraged to use the dedicated parking zones outside the construction area during this period, if vehicles are required for any trips.
The concrete curb and gutter installation started today (September 9), and will continue September 10, 12 and 13. Curing is expected to continue to September 14 and 15.
Asphalt paving is planned to occur about 10 days later, which will also cut off access to properties for three to four days. Please take note of the construction matrix for closures and plan ahead to access your vehicle.
Also this week, on Tuesday, September 13, Fortis Alberta has a planned power outage from 1 to 2 p.m. as part of the work to relocate their shallow utility lines. This will affect several properties on St. Julien Road and all properties on St. Julien Way.
