The stretch of Alpine Drive between Puma Street and Armstrong Blvd (CSAH 83) has been selected for street reconstruction in 2024. In addition, the trunk watermain between Armstrong Blvd and Puma Street will be extended to complete a critical watermain loop.

This Municipal State Aid (MSA) project will stop approximately 400 feet west of Armstrong Blvd. It will then tie into the new roundabout at Armstrong Blvd and Alpine Drive.

The watermain construction may require curb and gutter replacement. If the existing curb and gutter is in good working condition, directional drilling of the watermain will be done. Only spot concrete curb and gutter replacements will be necessary. On initial review, sub-soil conditions appear to be favorable to meet the 10-ton MSA pavement strength design requirements.
