It's been a busy season for street and related construction in Drumheller and it's almost over.

A detour opened at the beginning of October through the Hy-Grade Industrial Park so that crews could replace a large drainage culvert under Highway 575. The road is now open, but construction workers are still on the scene.

"I think they have a few little deficiencies that they're just in the process of cleaning up," outlined Drumheller CAO Darryl Drohomerski. "They should be done everything before the end of this week, weather dependant."

"The biggest reason for their delay was the abiility to get the (concrete) culvert segments manufactured," explained Drohomerski. "Once that was all done, it didn't take them long to put it all together and wrap up the project."

With the highway culvert project all but finished, there are just a couple of projects that still need some attention.

"They are putting in two signalized pedestrian crossings: where Railway (Ave.) intersects with 2 Street West, the Dollarama area; and the other one is on Grove Street," noted Drohomerski. "They've marked both pieces of pavement, but they haven't put the solar powered LED lights up on those posts yet."

He expects that work, the last of this year's planned road construction in Drumheller, to be finished very soon.
