A public information session on Nov. 29 will present the entire proposed twinned Highway 3 route from Sentinel to Pincher Station.

Display boards detailing the plans will be set up around the MDM and members of the ISL project team and Alberta Transportaion will be available to discuss the plans.

ISL has developed a recommended plan refining all the options that have been shown at prior events. Somers says they have incorporated input from the public, the technical standards committee and the project review committee since their last open house in June 2018.

“There are over 15 different specific considerations that we discussed in detail about all the options. We feel that this is the balanced plan,” says Alana Somers, project manager with ISL.

At this public event, all materials in the room will be at the same level of technical work and decision making.

The previous open house in June 2018 presented the single proposed route for Stage 1A from Sentinel to Blairmore and route options for Stages 1B and 2, from Blairmore to Pincher Station, for which they were seeking feedback.

According to Somers, ISL is continuing to assemble a full technical report document using the recommended plan, including a cost estimate.

“There are some technical things that we still need to complete. Some of those include formal response from Alberta Culture and Tourism on the environmental side.

We've had many conversations and meetings with them, but there is a formal step that needs to be completed,” says Somers. “We are also still in progress of doing First Nations consultation, which will be done by that spring timeframe. The next step is to finalize a cost estimate."

A draft functional plan is expected to be ready in early 2019 with a final plan to follow in spring 2019.

All material from the information session will be available on the project website at http://www.transportation.alberta.ca/6087.htm.
