Campsite Road Between Highway 633 & 37 Re-Opens
Morinville, AB - Campsite Road (Range Road 274) re-opened today with a newly re-constructed gravel surface following a four-year road closure.
Lafarge Canada entered into a development agreement with Sturgeon County in 2014 requesting to close Campsite Road (Range Road 274) for up to four years. Lafarge Canada funded the supply and placement of the new base and future pavement for the 800 meters of the roadway.
“This project benefits Sturgeon County tax-payers as Lafarge funded the construction costs to upgrade this welltravelled road. Thank you to the Gravel Extraction Committee for their involvement in this project and helping to build stronger communities. This is a great example of cooperation and collaboration between Sturgeon County and Industry working together for residents and the community.” said Deputy Mayor, Wayne Bokenfohr.
Lafarge Canada’s contribution of approximately $500,000 worth of subgrade re-construction and $870,000 worth of future asphalt surfacing greatly reduces the amount of budget required to complete the overall connection between highway 633 and 37 and will help advance the re-construction in the 4-Stage Capital Plan.
The asphalt surfacing and granular base is anticipated to be completed in 2020/2021, dependent on significant tax growth revenue.
A formal ribbon cutting will take place in the spring of 2019 to officially celebrate the opening of Campsite Road.
