Largest RDEK construction project commemorated
Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) Electoral Area A Director Mike Sosnowski was joined by several of the key people involved in the West Fernie Servicing and Restructure Project recently as he unveiled the plaque commemorating the project’s successful completion.
The $16.4-million two-phase project brought West Fernie residents and businesses into the City of Fernie with an upgraded water system and new storm water and sanitary sewer systems.
It was the largest construction project in the history of the Regional District of East Kootenay and was officially completed on July 24, 2018.
