Civic Centre main entrance construction begins June 19

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Beginning June 19, the Leduc Civic Centre will be undergoing construction. Concrete at the exterior of the centre’s main entrance, including sidewalks and cenotaph area, will be removed and restored. Following construction, new foliage and shrubs will be planted for landscape revitalization. Crews expect that this project will be completed by July 31, weather permitting.

Improved Safety and Maintenance 

Construction will repair and reduce the total amount of concrete at the centre. Once finished, these repairs will not only reduce future maintenance costs associated with the original amount of concrete, but will also improve safety by decreasing trip and slip hazards. Extremely wet soil conditions have affected the landscaping, negatively impacting tree growth planted in the area. For ease of maintenance, these trees are being removed and replaced with lower profile foliage better suited to the terrain.

Building and Parking Access

The Civic Centre main entrance will be accessible during construction. Although there will be increased traffic due to equipment, there will be no effect on the centre’s parking lot. Sidewalks will be inaccessible during some portions of this project; however, alternate routes will be clearly marked with detour signage for pedestrians. All constructions areas will be barricaded and marked for public safety.

Please obey all construction signs during this time and be mindful of the crews and equipment operating in the area. Thank you in advance for your patience. For more information, please call 780-980-7177 or email info@leduc.ca.
