Opal Drive Construction

Aug 15 2017
  OPAL DRIVE WATER MAIN LOOPING, 
NOTIFICATION OF CONSTRUCTION WORKS
 
You are receiving this letter because you reside or operate a business within the area primarily affected by the planned water main construction activities on Opal Drive.  Enclosed you will find a location plan illustrating the extents of the proposed “Construction Area” to understand the planned working area for construction equipment and personnel.
 
On June 13, 2017, the District of Logan Lake approved the Opal Drive Water Main Looping project that will provide additional fire protection by means of increased flow rates and more stable operating pressures within the existing water system.  A majority of the construction will be on Opal Drive between Galena Avenue to the north and the west entrance to the shopping plaza to the south-west.  The remainder of construction works will be located immediately south and adjacent to the Opal Drive road right-of-way, near the west access to the shopping plaza, where proposed water main tie-ins or connections to the existing water system will be completed on District owned property (shopping plaza).  
 
Construction activities include the demolition, removal and replacement of concrete curbs, gutters, and sidewalk situated along the west/north sides of Opal Drive, full road asphalt removal and restoration, and surface restoration of affected boulevard areas including signage and paint markings.  In addition, water service interruptions will occur as a result of the construction activities and a notice, prepared by the Contractor, will be supplied to you, and any affected properties, under separate cover, in an effort to inform you of the date and duration of the water service interruptions.  When completed, this project will provide pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles a safe, convenient and comfortable connection between Galena Avenue and the shopping plaza.  
On behalf of the District of Logan Lake, Eagle Rock Construction will be performing the water main improvements on Opal Drive.  The construction works are expected to commence in the coming days with the immediate removal of existing hard surfaces such as asphalt and concrete.  As such the construction works will significantly affect pedestrian, cyclist and vehicular traffic to and around the RCMP detachment, District Hall, Secondary School, and the shopping plaza.  
 
The Contractor will erect any necessary safety barricades and signs to protect and redirect pedestrians, cyclists, and traffic.  Once construction has commenced, pedestrian access along the Opal Drive sidewalk will be closed to the public and single lane alternating traffic will be controlled by the Contractor, until construction completion is achieved.  On occasion, there will be full road closures, lasting no more than one (1) work day to allow for safe working areas for the Contractor to perform his/her duties.  
Normal working hours for this construction will be Monday to Saturday, from 7am – 10pm.  Construction completion is expected near the end of October, 2017 and at the very latest construction will not extend beyond March 01, 2018.
 
Residents and businesses are encouraged to plan for this interruption appropriately.  The project team appreciates your patience, understanding and cooperation to help maintain a safe environment during construction.
