A Season Of Construction

Pipestone Flyer

Summer is always a good time for the city to repair, expand, and improve the quality of Leduc’s sidewalks and roads. The view that Alberta has two seasons, winter and construction, is as true in City of Leduc as in any other community in Alberta.

With Alberta Transportation constantly working on the QE2, along with both the County and City working on the roads within their jurisdictions it is hard for individuals not to come across signs indicating to either slow down or be prepared to have a lane disappear with often both occurring. For the past few weeks the Fire Department has been handicapped, as the front entrance has been blocked while necessary repairs are being made.

The Department has the rear exits available to them and has not been prevented from attending emergencies, by the work being done, in a timely manner.

For residents that have a pothole needing attention they can either call Public Services at 780-980-7108 or report them online(http://www.leduc.ca/City_Government/Departments/Public_Services/Road-Maintenance/Report_a_Pothole.htm) providing as much detail as possible about the pothole’s location.

This is a never ending effort which will only increase as the city continues to grow and adds additional sidewalks and roads to the current system to meet the needs of residents.
