MOUNTAIN VIEW COUNTY - County council has approved the spending of $177,950 to fund additional repair costs on the North Olds Golf Courses subdivision road project.

The approval came by way of motion at a recent regularly scheduled Mountain View County council meeting.

In a briefing note to council, director of operational service Ryan Morrison said large failures were appearing in front of many of the driveways and the road generally was not in good shape starting in 2019.

“Crews hauled in our pothole patch mix and filled the holes,” he said. “The condition of the road has continued to deteriorate, and it was decided that more work was needed than what can be done in the subdivision rechipping program due to the size and scope of the work to be completed.”

Operations met onsite with Richardson Brothers and prepared a work plan for budget approval, he said.

“The plan is to dig out all of the failed sections of the road, bring in new materials and then rebase the road,” he said. “One way traffic will be maintained at all times and all signage and flag people, if needed, will be supplied by the contractor.”
