Intersection at Victoria Dr and E 1st Ave

Victoria Drive area renewal

We’re renewing an aging water main along Victoria Dr from 2nd Ave to Broadway and a small portion of sewer on McSpadden Ave and Bauer St. 

This new water and sewer infrastructure will have a life expectancy of 100 years to help serve this growing neighbourhood.

What's happeningConstruction is underway

Water main and sewer upgrades will take place from mid-January to June 2021.

There have been changes to the scope and schedule of this upcoming work. The original scope included renewing sewer infrastructure along Victoria Dr, between East 1st Ave and East 10th Ave, and along East 6th Ave from Commercial Dr to Victoria Dr, and accompanying street and transportation improvements. 

The works identified in the original Victoria Drive Area Renewal project continue to be important infrastructure upgrades that we're prioritizing however, several internal and external factors have contributed to the postponement of the majority of the sewer work to the next Capital Plan, starting in 2023.
