ATCO Pipelines recently announced that the Alberta Utilities Commission has approved the Urban Pipeline Replacement Project. This project was proposed as a proactive solution to replace and relocate highpressure natural gas pipelines located in densely populated areas of Edmonton and Calgary into the Anthony Henday and Stoney Trail corridors. There will be three separate pipeline construction projects in Edmonton over the next five years. Maps are available and project updates will be provided at www.atcopipelines.com/upr.
Further communications will be provided once detailed plans and routing is finalized for the Southwest and South Edmonton Connectors which will directly impact residents in Ward 9. The tentative schedule for construction is currently in the 2nd Quarters of 2015 and 2017 respectively.
