Highway 3 and Range Road 105 intersection
CAO Dale Brown and Reeve Steve Wikkerink attended a meeting with the Town of Bow Island on the concerns of the Highway 3 and Range Road 105 intersection.
The town completed an engineering study on the intersections that provided a couple of options and costs estimates.
The town had originally requested Alberta Transportation undertake the improvements, but were advised that the increased traffic volume at this location was a result of the subdivision that Bow Island had recently completed. As a result, the intesection improvements would be at their cost and should be recoverable through the sales of the lots.
Alberta Transportation had recommended a three-way cost share in improvements.
Council voted to receive for information.
