Hay River mayor anxious to get fire hall project underway
Yellowknife, N.W.T. - As one project comes to an end, another is about to begin in Hay River.
Hay Riverites have been hearing all of the construction noises associated with the project at Diamond Jenness Secondary School, but now the new Fire Hall is about to be built and mayor Ken Latour knows it's going to be a noisy venture.
He said it may cause people some grief, but it won't be too bad in the downtown core.
“There will be some pile driving associated with this project and we just want to get the word out to people to be prepared,” he said. “It’s going to be disruptive noise-wise.”
Latour also said he knows people are getting anxious, but he hopes the knowledge of a finished product will make it worth it in the end.
“It’s one thing to talk about a project for a year and to think about in kind of an abstract way, but once we start seeing physical construction happening, I think that’s going to make it a lot more real for all of us and it will be very gratifying to see,” he said.
It was thought that construction could have begun this week, but Latour said the contractor, Arcan Construction, is still mobilizing itself and getting ready for construction to begin.
He added there has already been a get-together between both sides to make sure everyone is on the same page.
The project is expected to be completed by the spring of 2013.
