The Town of Hanna in collaboration with MPE Engineering is actively engaged in rejuvenating the municipal infrastructure along 2 Avenue West. Businesses within the project area have received an information package aimed at soliciting feedback and mitigating disruptions to the extent possible.
This initiative encompasses the removal and replacement of the road surface, streetlights, underground water and sewer pipes, as well as the sidewalks extending up to each building. The final roadwork design will incorporate concrete bump-outs at intersections, enhancing pedestrian safety and visual aesthetics.
The public engagement process, managed by 818 Studios Inc., has involved various methods to include residents. Additionally, ongoing consultations with Town Council members have led to modifications aligning the design more closely with the Town’s vision for 2 Avenue.
Currently navigating the grant application stage, the project aims to proceed to tender in early 2024. During construction, temporary boardwalks may be installed for sidewalk replacement and streetlight cable installation, ensuring access to businesses. However, due to the nature of the work, there may be periods when street access is temporarily restricted. The Town is committed to collaborating closely with businesses to minimize disruptions, and at least one month prior to construction, the project contractor will meet with each business to discuss the temporary access and water servicing plans.
