The people who use the walking trails can expect a temporary disruption when work begins on the new senior’s lodge.

Coun. Mathew Jaycox, who is all on the building committee for Rimoka Housing Authority said the portion of the walking trail on the west boundary of the property on which the new lodge is to be located will be moved.

“We plan to put a temporary gravel path on that section of trail,” he said.

Jaycox said there will be a short time lapse between moving the cement and getting the gravel trail in place, but the town and Rimoka will work together to ensure it happens as quickly as possible.

The gravel path will eventually be replaced with cement and the gravel may be used for a base.

Work has not begun on the lodge to date, but the fence has been put up.

Jaycox said work may begin before the formal sod turning takes place.

A management team consisting of representatives from Berry Architechture, Rimoka and the province will oversee the project.

The lodge is to be approximately 480,000 square feet and is to be located on 8.64 acres of land south of the Rimbey Best Western Rimstone Ridge Hotel.

The new facility is to have 82 rooms, including six double-occupancy suites.
