North Telford Neighbourhood Renewal

UPDATE: Landscaping continues along with planting of trees on private property. Construction completion inspection was scheduled for the week of Sept. 21 but rescheduled for the week of Sept. 30. Read full updates below

Funding support: Provincial grant (MSI)

In 2018 the City of Leduc began a two-year road rehabilitation project in the North Telford neighbourhood to renew the roadway's integrity and decrease long-term maintenance requirements. In addition to road construction, this project includes improvement of some water distribution pipe lines to meet current construction and fire fighting requirements. This project has been staged over the course of two years.

2019: Construction this year will focus on reconstruction of 51 Ave, 52 Ave and 45A St. 51 Ave and 45A St were reconstructed to gravel surface in 2018, and will be paved in 2019.

2018: Construction focused on completing water main replacement, road reconstruction along 54 and 53 Ave and multiway connection. View archived construction updates.

To complete this project, existing roadway was removed. However, roots of some trees in the neighbourhood had grown underneath the road structure, including a number of trees on private property. Evaluation of the trees by internal and external arborists determined the root systems of a number of trees would be impacted by excavation and construction, weakening their integrity and resulting in potential safety concerns. Consequently, a number of trees were removed prior to construction. Trees removed from private property will be replaced in July once residents have been consulted to identify tree type and location.
