In a post on their website, the City of Estevan released some updates as of June 10th on the downtown revitalization project.

They broke those updates apart into the following categories:

General:

ASL Paving has been engaged for the work, with Turnbull Excavating acting as their underground utilities subcontractor. Work started at the intersection of 4th Ave and 11th Street and is progressing to the West. Underground sewer, storm, and water mains, and the services to buildings is the main scope currently.

Access / Traffic Accommodation:

Sidewalks remain open with the exception of where service connections are needed to interrupt the access. Fencing is installed and detours are in place. Back alleys are currently operating as 2 way, and functioning, but may be transitioned to 1 way later in the project if needed.

Surfacing:

Roadway asphalt has been removed where work has commenced on the 1100 Block of 4th. Aggregates have been salvaged where possible. Asphalt in the intersection of 12th Avenue and 4th Street has been removed.

Sanitary Sewer:

Mains and services have been replaced with new lines from the intersection of 4th and 11th, up to approximately in line with the front doors of the Tower Restaurant. By the end of this week (June 10-14), this replacement will be almost at the 12th Avenue and 4th Street intersection.

Storm Sewers:

Mains have been replaced with new lines from the intersection of 4th and 11th, up to approximately in line with the front doors of the Tower Restaurant. Unknown lines were discovered in the intersection of 4th and 11th, but after investigation the lines were confirmed to be collapsed and not functional. We will endeavour to see where they go to when we install the catch basins.

Water:

Temporary water services to buildings have been installed, chlorinated, tested, and confirmed working on the 1100 Block of 4th. New isolation valves are installed and are functioning. Mains are being installed in the intersection of 4th and 11th, with the connection to the south completed, and the connection to the North in progress as of May 28th.

Electrical:

Removals of existing light poles on the 1100 Block of 4th has been completed.

Landscaping & Furnishings:

No work is currently underway.

Environmental Biology:

Trees were cleared in accordance with the required window for birds. No further issues have arisen.

Environmental contaminated sites:

Contamination was discovered as part of another project in the vicinity of this project at the intersection of 11th and 4th, and the contamination clean up is being handled under the other project.

We'll provide info on any more updates as those become available.
