Public Notice: Local Construction Survey
Occupants of Athabasca Avenue
The Town of Hinton has recently approved deep utility rehabilitation works on Athabasca Avenue from the intersection of Drinnan Way to the intersection Market Street. This work includes the replacement and upgrade of the sanitary line and the replacement of all water lines to the private service connection of your property. This work with require the removal and replacement of asphalt and will cause periodic interruption to customers and patrons of your business. As an established district, we recognize that your private service connections may also be aged and in need of replacement. The project requires locating your services to be able to reconnect your existing service lines and/or provide the opportunity for you to have your private connections replaced at your cost during the construction program.
Works are proposed for the summer of 2017 and we will be in touch with owners to see who wishes to replace service connections in the near future. Over the next few weeks, Foothills Surveys and Hoggan Engineering and Testing will be performing topographic surveys and drilling boreholes in the district for the proposed work. This work is required to ensure that construction works are completed properly and your private services can be located.
Foothills Surveys will be conducting Site, Road and Topographical Surveys of your neighborhood. The proposed survey boundary is set between the road and commercial frontage. These surveys will look at a number of elements of each property including existing sidewalk, curb, gutter and pedestrian ramps and painting.
In addition to topographic surveys, a geotechnical investigation will be done in order to determine all the excavation requirements and concerns that must be considered for the project, and will allow us to ensure that the project progresses as efficiently as possible. The boundaries for the geotechnical investigation include the roadway and sidewalks on Athabasca Avenue. The investigation will consist of drilling several boreholes within these boundaries.
Please note that this 2017 Capital Project is approved by Council and an official award of the General Contractor will be brought forward to Council on June 6, 2017. It is anticipated that the successful General Contractor will commence site work before June 30, 2017.
