Summer brings construction around Humboldt, making roads safer and easier to drive on. 

The primary construction happening as of now is 14th Street explained Peter Bergquist with public works. 

“From 6th Avenue and just North of Highway 5, there is a water main being replaced as well as some services to some properties. The road will be rebuilt right after that.”

The City is currently working on the curbs along Highway 5, installing accessibility ramps to get ready for the paving set to take place.

“There is going to be a mill and pave program that goes through the majority of Highway 5, and the Ministry of Highways is conducting that program. The City is paying a portion of that to get repaved.”

In addition to Highway 5, a portion of Highway 20 will be redone, which will take place from 2nd Avenue to the South City limits. 

“Many will remember that road as being rough, that section is being rebuilt this year.”

Bergquist stated there are a few more projects set to take place during the summer, but the focus will primarily be on the work for Highways 5 and 20. 

“There will be some trails being rebuilt in the Waterridge area, as well as completing the trail on 12th Avenue from 12th Street to Main Street. There will also be some miscellaneous concrete replacement and pothole patching around the City.”

Bergquist thanks the community for being understanding when it comes to construction around Humboldt and asks residents to obey signs and construction personnel.
