Current Road Projects
The Switzer Drive construction is twofold; sanitary upgrade and road infrastructure.    

  • Upgrading the main sanitary trunk that serves the eastern area of Hinton and ties into new Hardisty Lift Station project.
  • Constructs a new west bound and east bound traffic lane between the intersections of Joblin Street and Drinnan Way.  These intersections identify the transition points of existing road to new road infrastructure.  Once the new single west and east bound traffic lanes are opened, the Town will be decommissioning and removing the existing west and east road surface between these intersections.    The new road construction remains as one single lane of traffic for east bound traffic and one lane west for west bound traffic.
The new road infrastructure design (two lanes only) introduces stormwater management, a designated cross walk, improved street lighting and a pedestrian trail, which not only creates connectivity but promotes safer pedestrian movement in this area of our community.
