Road construction ongoing during summer

Rimbey’s streets are beginning to look better and road construction is to continue into the summer.

Summer storms sweeping through central Alberta has ground construction to a temporary halt and caused humans and animals to run for cover. This recent downpour slowed down Rimbey traffic and kept the sidewalks empty as pedestrians quickly found the nearest dry location.

Rimbey’s streets are beginning to look better and road construction is to continue into the summer.

CAO Tony Goode said Raiders Concrete has been hired to complete road repair at the Post Office corner and the Beatty House corner and the work should begin later this summer.

Work has now been completed on 51st Avenue between 47th and 48th streets and paving has been completed on 54th Avenue in front of the Rimbey Christian School.

Construction on the corner of 50th Street and 50th Avenue in front of the Vault and across from the Rimbey Review has been completed by Central City Asphalt.

“In spite of the heavy rains we have been experiencing it has been working quite well. We have no pooling of water there,” Goode said.

This spring council budgeted $1,090,546 for construction. Later they budgeted an additional $45,000 to repair the corners at the Post Office and the Beatty House.
