Athabasca Avenue is a commercial development in the early years of Hinton. The original sanitary and water lines were constructed in 1956 and are undersized for existing conditions and future growth and development for the east side of Town.
One of the key challenges in replacing the infrastructures services is being able to maintain traffic flow for business owners, customers and service delivery agencies on Athabasca Avenue.
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 Athabasca Avenue Road Rehabilitation Project seeks to minimize distribution to its immediate business owners and customers 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 will be sent to business owners with as much notice as possible for any service interruptions.
- Traffic access for delivery services and emergency services are being managed hands-on for all involved.
