As part of the Transportation for Tomorrow plan the road improvements will include a new creek crossing and frontage improvements for the new middle school H.S. Grenda which will open fall of 2021. The cost for construction of the project is $3,700,000 and is included in the 2020 District of Lake Country budget which was approved by Council on March 3, 2020.

This project will also provide the following infrastructure improvements:

  • A roundabout and frontage improvements adjacent to the new H.S Grenda Middle School. The proposed infrastructure improvements focus on connectivity, accessibility and safety for all and aligns with a Transportation for Tomorrow key goal of providing safe routes to schools.
  • Improved connectivity to Swalwell sports fields from Bottom Wood Lake Road with on street parking.
  • A new creek crossing and road realignment to the existing Berry Road roundabout. The existing culvert was assessed in 2017 by a structural engineer and was given an Urgency Rating of 4, with 5 being the highest priority. A structure similar to the one installed at the Reimche Road creek crossing in 2018 (shown below) will be installed with some esthetic enhancements so it complements and integrates with the Main Street/Downtown environment.
