Two Springdale Lanes to See Upgrades

Small streets will get big makeovers

Two Springdale Lanes to See Upgrades

Some residents in Springdale are getting closer to seeing improvements to their lanes. Churchill Place (pictured above) and Orange Lane, both located off Main Street near Valley Vista, will get new water and sewer infrastructure, and paving.

The biggest part of the cost will be covered by Federal and Provincial funding.

Premier Dwight Ball, MP Scott Simms, and Minister of Municipal Affairs and Environment Eddie Joyce travelled into Springdale on September 1st to make the funding announcement. Shoe Cove, South Brook, and Miles Cove will also receive funds. The total Federal and Provincial funding announced for water and sewer projects in this area comes in at about 1.4 million.

A Federal news release broke down the funding for the water/sewer work to be done on the Springdale lanes. The Government of Canada will provide up to $131,908, through the Small Communities Fund. The Province will throw in up to $224,280. The Town of Springdale will contribute up to $39,576.

But Churchill Place and Orange Lane residents don’t have to park their cars elsewhere just yet. The engineering process has yet to start and the project hasn’t been tendered. Exact timelines are unknown at this point but the Town of Springdale is “looking at Spring 2018 to initiate this project”.

From the Federal Government’s news release:

“…local residents will benefit from new water, sewer and storm water infrastructure, including new pipe lines on both Orange Lane and Churchill Place. Once the underground systems are complete, workers will repave these roads…”
