Project Update Real Martin Drive

3 months


Effective August 7, 2020 we will be repaving the road surface on Real Martin Drive from Thickwood Boulevard to the top of the hill just before the Fort McMurray Golf Club.

The Contractor will also be doing the following:

• Upgrades to the parking lot located at the top of the hill towards the Golf Course

• Installation of concrete sidewalks and curbs

• Extending the asphalt path from Williams Drive through the hill section of Real Martin Drive

• Miscellaneous asphalt re-surfacing

• Installation of pavement markings

• Grading and landscaping to existing ditches and drainage channels

It is anticipated that the upgrades will be completed August 31, 2020 weather permitting.

Partial Lane Closure

In order to complete the work in a safe manner, there will be partial lane restrictions in the construction zones from 7:00am to 7:00pm. Traffic on Real Martin Drive will be reduced to one lane only for the duration of the project.

Pedestrian Access

Pedestrian connectivity and access along Real Martin Drive will be maintained for the duration of construction. Pathways will be restricted to accommodate construction activities within the active work zones.

Residential Street Access

Vehicular access will be maintained throughout the duration of the construction. However, there will be intermittent closures within the intersection that is under construction. Residents will be re-routed to use other streets to gain access into the subdivision.
