13th AVENUE INFRASTRUCTURE REPLACEMENT PROJECT – Phase 2
(Municipal Sanitary Sewer and Water Pipes)
The District of Invermere has contracted MarWest Industries Ltd. (Castlegar) to undertake the replacement of municipal sanitary sewer collection and water distribution pipes located under 13th Avenue between 10th Street and 15th Street during the summer of 2022. The municipal sanitary sewer and water pipes under 13th Avenue need to be replaced and upgraded to meet some of the demands of existing and future development in Invermere. This is the second phase of infrastructure replacement along 13th Avenue. Other improvements that will be completed as part of this work include new road paving and a pedestrian/cycling pathway.
Part of the work taking place in 2022 involves surveying and locating existing pipes, followed by excavation, and the installation of new pipes and connections to existing residential services (sewer and water). Some temporary loss of water service may be experienced by residents at times during construction; however, the District and MarWest will work together to keep service interruptions to a minimum. MarWest will notify residents in advance of potential service interruptions.
In support of some deep sewer excavation work, it will be necessary to close sections of 13th Avenue to vehicle and pedestrian traffic to maintain safe conditions, as well as protect the public and of course workers at the job site. In addition, driveway access to some properties will be unavailable at times. When required, 13th Avenue traffic will be diverted to other roads.
Please pay careful attention to directional signage / reader boards near the project site; those directions will be updated regularly by Marwest.
The District and MarWest Industries apologize in advance for traffic delays and disruptions that this important work may impose on the public.
If you have any questions or concerns about the 13th Avenue – Phase 2 – Infrastructure Replacement Project, please contact the District of Invermere by phone 250-342-9281 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
