Beaumont, AB – Beaumont residents can look forward to a number of key infrastructure projects this year. The projects include 50 Street Zone 3 (Township Road 510 to 55 Avenue) realignment, 50 Avenue storm sewer upgrades, playground equipment replacement, as well as the annual street improvement and community pathways programs.
“As you can see by the number of projects, 2012 will be another busy and positive year for Beaumont. We believe these projects will continue to position Beaumont as a great community for continued growth in the future,” says Mayor Camille Bérubé. “We ask the community, and residents adjacent to the infrastructure projects, to watch for more details on each project in the Beaumont Communiqué newsletter, in the La Nouvelle/Beaumont News, and on the Town’s website.”
Along with the finishing touches on the construction of the north section of 50 Street (Township Road 510 to 41 Avenue) this year, the Town will be working on construction of 50 Street Zone 3 (Township Road 510 to slightly south of 55 Avenue, at the Ken Nichol Regional Recreation Centre). The Zone 3 construction includes the realignment of the roadway, due to traffic volume.
The 50 Avenue storm sewer upgrades include the installation of a water main and storm sewer line to improve the existing design and to accommodate future development.
Four playgrounds are slated to get new equipment this year. They include Parc du coin/Corner Park, Parc Carousel Park, Parc Canal LeBlanc Park, and Parc Boulevard Park.
The street improvement program maintains existing municipal roadways by asphalt milling, concrete replacement and overlays. The community pathways program encourages fitness, recreation and an appreciation of nature.
