Coalhurst Officials Disappointed In Province's Response to Highway-3 Intersection Issues

 
 
Coalhurst:  Not only did Coalhurst officials not get the answers they were hoping for from the province about the Highway-3 intersection but, they're now also questioning the province's definition of "sharing".

    Alberta Transportation sent the town a letter, stating it will not consider a speed reduction on Highway-3 and a re-positioning of the deceleration lane is not acceptable because it would impact sight lines. 

  Coalhurst Chief Administrative Officer, Kim Hauta says, "Alberta Transportation did propose a cost share scenario with Coalhurst to deal with the alternate access road however, it's similar to previous discussions, which has the town carrying the lion's share of the cost. Hauta says that cost is pegged at about $3-million. He adds, "Coalhurst's share would be between 2-million dollars and 2-and-a-half million dollars".

  Hauta says Mayor Dennis Cassie wants to respond the Province's letter, requesting a 50-50 funding arrangement for the access road.

  According to Hauta, "They (Alberta Transportation) are asking us to concur with this letter and concur with the proposal and move on".  He says, "We are going to respond that we are not prepared to sign it and request the 50-50 funding".

  There have been two fatal collisions at the the Highway-3 intersection with Coalhurst, the latest on February 10th.  However, the list of none fatal collisions is lengthy.
