2023 Construction

52 Street Revitalization Project - Phase 2 & Phase 3

Update: Nov. 13, 2023

Work on 52 Street has wrapped up for the season and the road is now open to traffic. 

Outstanding work to be completed in the spring includes the placement of the last sections of sidewalk between 50th and 51st Avenues, the top layer of asphalt on all three blocks, and the placing of sod and final landscaping on all three blocks. 

The Project

The Municipal Improvement Plan of the Town of Olds ensures the continual  monitoring and renewal of aging infrastructure to prevent system failure. 
This revitalization initiative involves the replacement of underground sewer and water lines, installation of new sidewalks, curb and gutter, and asphalt  overlay as underground utilities and surface infrastructure in this area have exceeded their lifespan and require replacement.
Ruby Rock Asphalt Works Ltd. is the contractor on this project.

Olds Aquatic Centre Renovation

The Olds Aquatic Centre is closed for renovations. These renovations are extensive and will result in a 42 per cent savings in energy costs and add 20 years of life to the facility.

We are still waiting on a few key elements that prevent us from being able to provide a specific date. As discussed in the November 13th council meeting, this includes test results and a few components necessary for the safe operation of the pool.

We recognize the excitement and anticipation surrounding the reopening of our community pool and that this news is disappointing.

Your understanding and support mean a lot to us during this time. Thank you. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and understand how important the pool is to our community. We’re committed to getting our pool up and running safely.

What is being done?
