Drumheller CAO Darryl Drohomerski said they're just finishing the last of the paving and related road work.
"There are two signalized crosswalks going in: one on Highway 9 North and Grove Place, and then one at 2 St. West and Railway Avenue, basically replacing the signed crosswalk with a signalized crosswalk," he outlined. "We're just waiting for the equipment to come in that the contractor had ordered for it."
They also hope to have another section of cast iron water line downtown replaced with new plastic pipe.
"The contractor's got two different pieces: they're doing some water main removal and they're also doing some work at our wastewater treatment plant," Drohomerski told Drum FM. "Because of delays in getting a valve for the water main renewal, they switched over to work at our wastewater treatment plant and should be doing the water main, I believe they said it would probably be about two weeks."
As CAO, Drohomerski is also keeping tabs on pending flood compensation for people adversely affected when the Rosebud River overtopped its banks last spring.
"It seems similar to what happened a year ago when we had the flooding in Rosedale from the ice jams," he recalled. "People had an idea about what they were going to be compensated for and, obviously further along the line, the reimbursement happened directly to the residents."
Drohomerski knows of several people and organizations that will be staking claims for flood damage, including a couple of homes along the Red Deer River in west Rosedale.
