Exciting developments in Newton as Union Drive is officially back in business, marking a major achievement in our ongoing reconstruction project.

Completed Section: N 4th Ave W to N 15th Ave W

Union Drive has undergone a substantial transformation, covering the stretch from N 4th Ave W to N 15th Ave W. This revamped segment guarantees a smoother commute and upgraded infrastructure for all travelers along this vital route.

Looking Forward: Anticipated Completion in Spring/Summer

Our focus shifts to the future completion of the remaining section of Union Drive, situated north of N 15th Ave W, expected in the spring/summer 2024. This progress aligns with our commitment to providing enhanced connectivity for the community.

Aesthetic Enhancements: Curbs and Gutters

Say goodbye to the old rural charm of Union Drive! The absence of curbs has been addressed with a significant facelift. The introduction of curbs and gutters not only elevates the road's visual appeal but also contributes to a more contemporary and efficient design.

Winter Driving Advisory: No Salt, Opting for Sand

As winter approaches, a crucial update on road maintenance – in order to preserve the integrity of the new construction, sand will be utilized on Union Drive instead of salt. Exercise caution during winter weather, and consider alternative routes for a safer drive. Your cooperation is vital for the longevity of these improvements.

A heartfelt thank you for the community's understanding and patience throughout this construction season. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to enhance our community's infrastructure.
