Mayor Gerald Aalbers says the concrete is being poured and the job is on track as the Highway 16 rehab work faces it’s October 31 deadline.
His comments came on Monday following the regular Council meeting.
“They’re pouring concrete again on the east direction of Highway 16. Sixty-second Avenue has been poured. There are some curbs to go in. They are still finishing the turning lane on 66. And step after step is just moving forward here.”
Aalbers said he saw several of the contractors working on the road and he expects the work will continue until it is complete.
On the Lloydminster Museum project, Aalbers said he hoped the work would be done before Christmas. This as the City looks for volunteers to join the art policy committee with the application deadline October 15.
“The museum is working on schedule, hoping to be open before Christmas and the Administration is working on the art policy framework and will be calling on volunteers and people to put their names forward to join that committee.”
Aalbers noted that Lloydminster is home to many gifted artists spanning the spectrum of creative expression.
