Parks Canada Hoping to Mitigate Construction Headaches for Waterton Visitors, Residents

It's going to be a busy, and sometimes noisy, few months in the Waterton townsite with construction of the new visitor centre underway.

A Parks Canada official says they're hoping to keep construction-related headaches to a minimum for the visitors and residents of Waterton.
 
Work on the new $17-million Waterton Lakes National Park visitor centre is already underway and located right in the middle of the townsite.
 
Jim Lambe is Project Lead for the park's Federal Infrastructure Program. He says the work site will be fenced off for the safety of visitors and animals, adding all construction traffic will be routed away from the commercial sector of the community.
 
Lambe says crews are working 8am to 8pm seven days a week to take advantage of Waterton's short summer construction season. He says Sunday morning work will be limited to low-noise activity.
