Although the first stage of the 82 Street road renewal project is completed before students return to school, stage two will have to wait.
 
Stage one of repaving, from 98 Avenue to 96 Avenue in front of James Mowat Elementary, was planned to be finished by the end of July. The project was still ongoing over the weekend.
 
"We wanted it done so the road will be open for the start of when teachers and registration starts for the schools in the area," said Joey Farebrother, engineering coordinator with the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Stage two will include more paving done on 82 Street from 96 Avenue to 95A Avenue, spanning across two intersections.
 
"Originally we wanted to do the whole stretch as one project, but looking into the accessibility into the area we had to split it into two," added Farebrother.
 
Work on phase two will resume in the summer of 2019.
 
The City of Fort Saskatchewan looked into building a roundabout at 82 St and 96 Ave but decided to go another route after residents voted down the idea.
