Duggan Tunnel Replacement Project.
As you may be aware, the Duggan tunnel sanitary sewer line services neighbourhoods in south-west Edmonton, from Steinhauer up to Bonnie Doon, and has been identified for replacement. The proposed alignment of the new tunnel is along 111 Street from Saddleback Road/29A Avenue, east along 34 Avenue, north on 106 Street to the tie-in connection north of L.Y. Cairns School.
This project is part of EPCOR’s Corrosion and Odour Reduction Strategy (CORe) which was initiated in 2019. With the completion of the new tunnel, the major cause of how odour is formed and how it is pushed out into the communities is expected to be notably diminished.
EPCOR is expecting to have a contractor on-board in early 2022, with construction beginning spring-summer 2022. The work will be done in sections with the sequencing and timing of the work determined by the contractor. The overall project is expected to be completed by 2026. Please note: These timelines are estimates and are pending internal approvals, and contractor procurement/availability.
More information will be provided before work begins and will include details of traffic impacts, timelines and schedule.
Construction Update - Steinhauer and Ermineskin Flood Mitigation Project
Here is a construction update for the Steinhauer and Ermineskin Flood Mitigation Project.
The excavation of the dry pond in Steinhauer Park began on May 25. The next phase of work will be the installation of the underground infrastructure to connect the dry pond in Steinhauer Park to the storm drainage system.
In order to connect the Steinhauer Park dry pond to the drainage system, there will be three locations that will require sewer upgrades. The locations and estimated timelines are:
· Location A: 32A Avenue from 108 Street to 107A Street - June 29 to end of August
· Location B: On 106 Street, north of 31 Avenue - early-July to end of August
· Location C: On 31 Avenue east of 107 Street - early-July to end of August
Please note: Timelines are estimates and may change based on weather and construction conditions.
The majority of the work will be open trench excavation for the dry pond connections. Residents may experience general noise from the construction equipment used for material delivery, excavation, soil removal and surface restoration.
The bike bumps at Ermineskin Playground will be undergoing some repairs.
The space will be fenced off and closed starting the last week in June and for up to 4 weeks. 6 trees will also be replaced at the time.
The playground and gazebo will remain open.
The fence around the sports field in the west section of Ermineskin Park will be removed on June 16. Residents will be expected to only use the space for light recreational activities (i.e. no cleats or bikes on the sod) to give it additional time to become more durable.
Also, the security lights in Ermineskin park have been permanently fixed.
