Waterbridge Phase 1 Rough Grading

​Status​Active
​Timeline​2015
​Location​West of SunRidge Park


Project Description

To provide construction services for the rough grading of Waterbridge Phase 1.



Background

Waterbridge is located at the intersection of Metis Trail and Chinook Trail in southwest Lethbridge. It will contain two new neighbourhoods, east and west of Metis Trail, encompassing 263 hectares (649 acres), and will, at full build-out, accommodate approximately 8,800 people. The size of Waterbridge enables it to include a variety of low and higher density housing choices and opportunities to incorporate local commercial, recreational and institutional uses.

The community offers options for housing, mobility and recreation. The design supports a safe and convenient network of open spaces and pathways which connect the subdivisions to each other. The neighbourhood nodes, combined with the park nodes, provide focal points for residents to interact and socialize by creating a sense of place. The plan encourages active transportation modes by creating opportunity for a well-connected, modified-grid road pattern. There will be a concerted effort to incorporate the natural open spaces and engineered open spaces (i.e. storm water facilities) into the overall open space plan.

Waterbridge Phase 1 will feature the new middle school for Lethbridge School District #51 scheduled to open September 2018. It will also feature a sports field that will include soccer and baseball activities and future residential development.

Lethbridge School District #51 will be issuing a construction tender for the school building in November 2015.

Deep utility and surface works construction is expected to begin in spring 2016 and continue until fall 2016. Deep utility construction will include water, sewer and storm line installation. Surface works construction includes sidewalks, curbs, street lighting and road paving.
