The Village of Chase is very pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the Investing in Canada Infrastructure – Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Program to build a footbridge across Chase Creek from Willson Park to Village-owned property north of Cedar Avenue. The total investment for the project is $150,000, with the Federal contribution of $60,000, a Provincial contribution of $50,000 and a Village contribution of $40,000.
Currently, pedestrians must cross Chase Creek on the Coburn Street bridge which can sometimes be unsafe as there is no dedicated pedestrian pathway on the vehicle bridge deck. The footbridge will provide a safe pedestrian connection between Cedar Avenue and the downtown area of Chase.
Construction will begin once all permits and engineering is completed.
