Road construction has started on Great Bear Blvd W., formerly known as the future portion of Macleod Dr. W. located west of McMaster Blvd W. and Macleod Dr. W.
The project consists of the installation of utility infrastructure, road construction and pathway development. The extension of Great Bear Blvd W. is critical to provide access and utility servicing to the future Fire Station #5 located in Watermark.
The City of Lethbridge is currently designing the new Fire Station (#5). The new facility will be approximately 1200 square meters in size and will include three drive through apparatus bays and sufficient space for parking and fire grounds training.
Today the population of west Lethbridge is nearing 40,000 with the Fire Master Plan identifying an additional fire station is required to service west Lethbridge, providing an additional fire truck and ambulance to west Lethbridge and improving response times for this side of the city.
Construction of Fire Station #5 will start in the summer 2019 with completion set for fall 2020.
