49th Avenue

The Town will be rehabilitating 49th Avenue from highway 779 Intersection to Golf Course Road intersection. The road will be rehabilitated using Full Depth Reclamation (FDR), a process that mixes the existing road with new oil before being capped with new asphalt. The Project is expected to start late late May and take 2 weeks to complete. The Town is working with Fire Services in order to minimize any affect the project will have on Emergency Services. There will be traffic disruptions so please follow posted signage on any detour routes.

Central Trunk Rehab (existing sanitary line)

The Town’s central trunk sanitary sewer catchment area services primarily the oldest part of Stony Plain which is presumably sensitive to I&I (Inflow and Infiltration). The Central Trunk catchment area overloads the sewer system pipe capacity due to I&I in severe wet weather events. To alleviate the risk of overland and basement flooding; the Town will endeavor to add further capacity into the pipe which will mitigate the flooding risks during large storm water events. We are currently undertaking pre design to evaluate our options before moving forward.
