On July 22, there were construction workers, bobcats, and other signs of progress at the long-standing construction sites at Brady and Lily Creek on Highway 88.

By Sunday, July 26, there were pilings being pounded into the ground at Lily Creek.

Alberta Transportation says bridge construction was scheduled to start on Monday, July 20 which should be finished late September or mid-October.

These bridges will replace two culverts which washed out last year because of a 100-year flood. This was the second flood in two years which damaged Marten Beach subdivision.

Around the Lesser Slave River bridge, potholes were patched. There were people putting up temporary reduced speed signs on Highway 754, just before the Hwy. 88 intersection. This road goes to Wabasca.

At some point this summer, construction is scheduled for a section of Highway 88 between the Atikameg (Hwy. 750) and Little Buffalo (Hwy. 986) highways.

Construction workers at Lily Creek bridge construction site, just past the turn off for the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation on Hwy. 88. The culvert washed out over a year ago.
