Patterson Road Surface and Deep Utility Replacement

The Town of Okotoks will be replacing the aging watermain, sanitary sewer, and pavement on Patterson Road next year (see graphic).

The work will include the replacement of individual lot sanitary and water service to property line. Road structure will be redone with new pavement added from curb to curb. Existing curb in good condition will be salvaged. The sanitary sewer near the Clark Avenue stairs (see yellow portion of graphic) will be undergoing maintenance which may involve excavation and replacement of the main or manholes, and may require the closure of the stairs.

As a part of the design process, the Town intends to construct a new sidewalk on Patterson Road.  Design consultants will determine which side of the road can best accommodate a sidewalk.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Engineering Services at 403-938-8053.
