NOTICE OF WORK – Athalmer Trails Construction

 In Home, Notice of Work

The District of Invermere has contracted MarWest Industries Ltd. (Castlegar) to undertake the construction of new trails in Athalmer. The focus of this work is to expand our existing trail network and provide safe pedestrian access. Work will be taking place on the Lake Windermere Public Lands (Area C), along 3rd Avenue (Area A), along Laurier Street between 3rd Avenue and 4th Avenue (Area G), and along 4th Avenue (Area H) all as shown on the map below.

The trails construction mostly involves grading and paving.  Traffic and road disruptions should be minimal.  However, the trail construction along 4th Avenue involves the addition of a curb and gutter and creation of stormwater works which may cause some traffic disruptions at times in the area.  Some of that work will involve the removal of pavement between Laurier Street and Carwright St along 4th Avenue.

It will be necessary to close sections of 4th Avenue to vehicle and pedestrian traffic to maintain safe conditions, as well as protect the public and workers at the job site.  In addition, driveway access to some properties will be unavailable at times.  When required, vehicle traffic will be diverted to other roads.

Please pay careful attention to directional Signage / Reader Boards near the project site; those directions will be updated regularly by Marwest. The District and MarWest Industries apologize in advance for any traffic delays and disruptions that this important work may impose on the public.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Athalmer Trails Project, please contact the District of Invermere by telephone: 250-342-9281 or by email:

Angela MacLean, P.Eng.

Director of Public Works & Operations
