Planning is to begin for the second phase of replacing the sanitary trunk main under 50th Avenue during the coming construction season.

Councillors directed staff to request proposals from qualified engineers to complete design work on the project, during their meeting Monday night.

Because of a delay is establishing the town’s budget for 2014, project manager David Kelham requested approval to proceed with finding an engineer.

“If an engineer is not ready to be selected prior to budget approval, the design process will be delayed for about six weeks and in turn construction would be delayed for the 2014 construction season,” stated his report.

The trunk main being replaced is along 50th Street from 41st Street to 47th Street. It is “in need of replacement due to age and also needs to be upgraded to handle additional flows for future growth,” reported Kelham.

The work would continue the sanitary trunk main upgrade and replacements project done this year. The first phase of the project, went from the main lift station on the east side of Highway 20 on Sylvaire Close to 41st Street.
