Based on several comments, the team is reviewing options related to the propagation of the water issue that appears to be spreading onto private property from areas where the road has had added materials. Additionally, it has come to our attention during the hydrovac operations that there are utility conflicts with gas, power, and cable.
The City of Wetaskiwin is committed to delivering the best possible solution for the 62nd Street area. The City is further reviewing all of the options for a design solution that will achieve the project objectives of removing water from the ditches and road base and complete the surface treatment as well to help limit the disruption to residents.
If the project scope does change the City will host another open house to get feedback from residents. If social distancing measures are still required the engagement will be through mail or online surveys. As the City works through the challenges discovered you will be updated each step of the way.
