There's some major roadwork being done near a local school.
Road reconstruction is now underway on 82 Street in front of James Mowat Elementary.
"No major problem. It was just the time of its life where the asphalt surface had degraded to a point where it ended up needing to be replaced," said the city's director of project management, Grant Schaffer.
The goal is to remove the entire road (base included) and replace it. Doing so will allow the road to last another 20 years or so.
The north edge of the school zone will be closed off for the better part of July. Once that portion is done, crews will move to the south end of the school. The work should be complete in August before kids return to class.
Every road will eventually get the same treatment depending on where it is in its lifespan.
The city has been in contact with people in the area. Some driveways and sidewalks will be blocked off during the construction.
Detours are in place.
