Martensville residents may have noticed some construction taking place along Centennial Drive North. Contractors are currently working on the area between 3rd Street North and 9th Street North. The work they are doing will include adding a longer turning lane for southbound traffic at 3rd Street North, as well as roadway realignment. This section of road will also be getting a new asphalt overlay, with patching and repair work carried out on areas where required.
With numerous businesses located along this roadway, the City of Martensville has been working with the contractors to ensure that minimal disruption takes place while this work is being completed. “Throughout the paving process, access to businesses will be maintained using detours. Some of these detours may involve routing traffic through adjacent driveways for businesses with adjoining parking lots,” the City of Martensville stated in a notice.
Plans to have the construction completed by October 15th have been set; however the majority of the paving work will be carried out before that time. “Due to the nature of the work, the schedule will remain weather dependent. It is the desire of the City and the contractor to have the work completed as soon as possible,” the notice added.
Motorists are reminded to pay attention to detours and construction zones throughout this time and watch as these detours and construction areas will be limited in size and will be moving frequently to ensure that access can be maintained to area businesses.
