2023 – Meadowview Drive: reconstruction and surfacing


Project Highlights

The Project

Meadowview Drive was built as part of the original range road system during the early part of the last century. The road had a clay and tree base with minimal ditches and drainage culverts.

This project involves the reconstruction and surfacing of Meadowview Drive from Highway 44 to Range Road 263A as well as from Range Road 261A to the St. Albert boundary.

Construction for Phase 2 and Phase 3 (about 4.3 km) was started in summer 2022, the remaining work will be done in summer 2023. Paving will begin east of Cunningham Bridge on May 29. Paving west of Reyda Vista subdivision will be done after that.

Rehabilitation of Meadowview Drive from Range Road 261A to 263B was completed in summer 2022.

The Scope of Work

  • Asphalt removal​
  • Earthworks and grading​
  • Base and paving​
  • Rebuilding existing residential/farm approaches​
  • Ditch rehabilitation/cleaning

What This Means to You

The traffic accommodation plan will be done to ensure that one lane is always open during the work hours, as well as providing access to residences throughout the project. Residents will be notified in advance if their access will be blocked.

Residents will be provided with a contact number in case there are any concerns.
