The District of Elkford’s paving project got underway on July 20 and will continue throughout the summer.

Alpine Drive, Ash Crescent, parts of Balmer Drive and parts of Alpine Way neighbourhoods will be the first to be paved. According to the district, this project is part of a larger paving plan that was defined in the district’s Five Year Strategic and Financial Plans.

Work crews will be monitoring areas and will keep homeowners informed and updated regarding the progress of the project. Homeowners will also be notified about any altered traffic patterns or temporary road closures required.

Although some roads will need to be closed in order to complete the work, through traffic will be maintained for emergency vehicles whenever possible. Detour routes should be available for all expected road closures.

If you have further questions about the Elkford paving project or work being done in your area, contact the Public Works department at or call 250-865-4025.
