This year's multiple improvements in the Fort come with a $10 million price tag.
 
Projects carried over from 2017 include Taurus Field and the curling club, which will both be open this spring.
 
Construction of the universal change rooms at Habour Pool will start this summer.
 
"There's no major capital project on the books this year, but there's a number of smaller ones and a number of our normal work that we do," said the city's infrastructure and planning project management director Grant Schaffer.
 
The city has a couple water projects in the works.
 
“The water reservoir renew project; that’s looking at the main reservoir and the systems we have there and doing some upgrades. The first part of that is bringing a consultant on board to nail down the scope of the work, find out exactly what we need to do and get some cost around that,” said Schaffer. “Then we’ll take that back to council through our budget policy to actually get the dollars approved for the construction.”
 
Improvements and upgrades are planned for the bulk water station, which will go through a similar process.
 
Road rehabilitation will be conducted on 82 Street in front of James Mowat Elementary in July and August. The neighbourhood rehab on Ross Drive and into the JRC should wrap up before the leaves fall.
 
There is also a small piece of road near the dog park that needs work.
 
“It will be a slight impact to dog park users, but we’ll have traffic accommodation strategies in place,” said Schaffer.
 
Part of the river bank collapsed adjacent to River Road. Construction crews will realign the road further from the bank to ensure traffic safety.
 
“We do ask that people watch for signage, look for those detours when they’re posted and please respect the work zones as we’re moving through things as quickly as we can."
