With fall just around the corner and winter not far behind, construction season here in Thompson is almost over.
Speaking on City beat on 102.9 CHTM late last week, Mayor Dennis Fenske gave an update on the various projects happening throughout the city. He said that paving is currently underway on three projects: the multi-use path on Princeton Drive, Selkirk Avenue, and a section of Campbell Drive.
Fenske added that all paving projects should be done by mid-September if the weather cooperates.
With regards to the new $30M waste water treatment plant, the Mayor said that they are still on the foundation phase of the project, which he said they expect to last for a while longer.
Mayor Fenske also addressed the Beaver / Staghorn / Deerwood area, saying that now that work is complete, the City will be sending in street sweepers to clean up from the extensive work that was completed over the summer months.
