Project Update - December 2019
The project is at 90% completion of the detailed design work and is currently on schedule for an anticipated construction start date of spring 2020. The process of engaging a construction contractor has started.
At this time, we are planning on phasing construction and providing temporary access routes in areas affected by the work to avoid total closures. Once a contractor is engaged, details of the phasing will be finalized. We anticipate construction to be completed in late fall 2021.
In late October 2019, the Government of Alberta announced budget cuts that affected all municipalities, including Edmonton. To minimize the effect of these cuts, the City reviewed and prioritized all current and future projects, including Beaumaris Lake Open Space Rehabilitation.
On December 13, Council recommended this project move ahead as planned. It is our continued responsibility to ensure the project budget is allocated appropriately, while delivering the best service possible to the community.
We will provide another update in early spring 2020.
