Meadow Drive is a residential development in the early years of Hinton. There has been a number of water breaks in the original water line installed in the 1950s. The road and sidewalk were in need of replacement recognizing a number of sidewalk trip hazards. With this rehabilitation the sanitary line is being replaced and storm management is being constructed. One of the key challenges in replacing the infrastructures services is being able to maintain traffic flow for residents, visitors and service delivery agencies on Meadow Drive. The storm water is new infrastructure and the water and sanitary tie into a collector road, (Macleod Avenue and Mountain Street) and will impact the community-at-large.
From conception in 2017 through to construction completion, the Town of Hinton and ISL Engineering and Land Services, work in partnership to design, engineer and deliver a project on schedule and budget. GS Construction, the General Contractor, is the successful bidder from the Pre-Qualification(RFPQ) tendering process and has worked with the Town of Hinton and ISL Engineering and Land Services. Together we have been able to design and achieve cost savings in the budget through using everyone’s expertise. Border Paving (a local business) is also recognized as supporting the project with their local knowledge.
The Meadow Drive Road Rehabilitation Project seeks to minimize distribution to its immediate residents and the adjacent neighbours.
- Design and construction identifies the need to ensure water and sanitary connections are maintained during the construction with minimal interruptions. Notices are being sent to residents as required to provide as much notice as possible for any service interruption.
- Sidewalks are closed to the general public and residents to maintain safety for all during construction.
- Utility (power, internet and communication providers) will remain present throughout the project area. Relocation of both above and below ground utilities required careful coordination to minimize service disruptions to Utility providers.
- Traffic access for garbage pick-ups, delivery services and emergency services are being managed hands-on for all involved.
- Temporary parking solutions to minimize distribution for residents to have access to recreational vehicles and trailers during the construction program are in
