RMWB Wildfire Recovery Information

Effective immediately, all contractors and builders participating in any aspect of the rebuild in Beacon Hill must use the newly built construction access road at all times. 

The construction access road has been built on the greenspace adjacent to Beacon Hill Drive and Highway 63. The road is marked and is separated from residential traffic by a fence.

This new temporary construction access road will help to improve safety in Beacon Hill, where there is a high concentration of rebuild activity, by separating heavy construction traffic from residential traffic. This road will also help to maintain the cleanliness of public roadways in the neighbourhood.

All residential traffic will continue to access the community using existing streets. Residential use of the temporary construction access road is limited to those accessing the Construction Management Team trailer and their individual lots or homes. 

Due to persistent wet weather, the construction access road in Abasand, which has been built on the emergency access route that travels east from Abbotswood Drive to Grayling Crescent, will remain closed until further notice.

In the interim, the Municipality is asking contractors to help improve safety in Abasand by keeping loads to a minimum on Athabasca Avenue and Abasand Drive from 8:20 a.m. to 8:40 a.m. and from 3:15 p.m. to 3:40 p.m. Monday through Friday and to avoid driving in front of École Boréale, where school is back in session. 

Any improper use of the construction access roads or use of residential roads by construction traffic should be reported to the Construction Management Teams.

Questions about the use of these construction access roads should be directed to the PULSE Line at 780-743-7000 or to recovery@rmwb.ca.
