Crossing waterline replaced
By DARRYL HOLYK he long-awaited project to replace the waterline just north of the Canadian Pacifi c railway crossing on Main Street began Monday morning. A 160 foot span of steel encased line, running north and south beneath the crossing was replaced by the Town, CP and a number of local tradespeople. Th Town fi rst dug up a patch of Main Street north of e the CP crossing to locate the water break in early October 2011. Work was halted when it was discovered that the break was located under the CP track. As a result, the Town had to work closely with CP to approve the work and to ensure it would not affect the rail line at the Main Street crossing. Th waterline had been shut-off since the e leak was discovered in October as a precaution to not undermine the rail crossing. Town CAO, Ken Jenkins, indicated the Town has been extremely impressed with the co-operation and quick turnaround time of Canadian Pacific on this project.
