Riverside Meadows Infrastructure Revitalization

Planning is underway for infrastructure upgrades in Fairview and Riverside Meadows.

The scope verification and phasing plan has been completed and detailed design is currently underway for this project. Construction will begin in 2020, continuing until 2025. The following tasks will be conducted in each neighbourhood:

Riverside Meadows:

  • Replacing underground utilities (water, sanitary and storm)
  • Relining underground utilities (sanitary and storm)
  • Road improvements (repaving and some roads will be reconstructed)
  • Replacing catchbasins

Fairview

  • Replacing catchbasins
  • Road improvements (repaving and some roads will be reconstructed)

We would like to thank the community for the input provided at our open house on February 12, 2020. For those who could not attend the meeting, you can view the following maps which provide the planned scope of work for each street, and the year which the work is planned to occur in the project timeline. 

Although this is the current intended plan for the project, we are currently working on the detailed design and construction staging plan. Areas may be adjusted based on the detailed design and further investigation during the project lifespan.

As part of the first phase of the Riverside Meadows and Fairview Infrastructure Revitalization, The City will be having a third party contractor conduct borehole drilling along the streets identified in the 2020 program. Residents should be aware of equipment, workers and signage in their area and allow for extra time for travel during the drilling operation. Drilling is currently expected to take place on weekdays between March 13 and March 18, 2020 along the streets listed below:

  • 58A Street, west of 60 Avenue
  • 59 Street, from 60 Avenue to 69 Avenue
  • 60A Street, west of 59 Avenue
  • 60A Street, from 59 Avenue to 58 Avenue
  • 60 Street, from 54 Avenue to 51 Avenue
  • 55 Avenue, from Kerry Wood Mews to 60 Street
  • 58 Avenue, from 60 Street to 61 Street
  • 59 Avenue, from 59 Street to 61 Street
  • Fairbank Road
  • Fox Crescent, with the north leg of Fern Road
  • Freemont Close
  • Forest Close

Some of the streets listed above may have temporary parking restrictions in place to allow room for the contractor to safely conduct their work. No-Parking signs will be posted the night before the temporary restriction is required and be removed immediately following completion of the work. Parking restrictions are not expected to last more than a single day for each area where they are required.

Additionally, a temporary road closure will be in place for 60 Street, between 54 Avenue and 51 Avenue on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. During the closure traffic will be detoured to 59 Street via 54 Avenue and 51 Avenue. Signs will be posted during the closure to direct traffic along the detour.

The City thanks residents for their patience as we conduct this investigation work.
