The Millar Creek to Function Junction Valley Trail extension is now complete and open to the public.

Two major municipal capital projects—the Alta Lake sewer extension and Millar Creek to Function Junction Valley Trail segment—are now completed.

The Alta Lake sewer project is done ahead of schedule, and its completion means all of Whistler’s neighbourhoods are now connected to the municipal sanitary sewer system.

The work included about one kilometre of sanitary sewer main, manholes and connections to 33 property parcels, and homeowners will be connecting to the new sewer main over the next 18 months.

The cost for design and installation was about $1.3 million, shared 50/50 between the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) and affected parcel owners after a formal petition process from residents in 2019.

Meanwhile, the RMOW is also celebrating the completion of the Millar Creek to Function Junction Valley Trail extension, which is now open to the public.

“We are pleased to see after delays due to COVID in 2020, this important project is now complete and ready for use by the public,” said Mayor Jack Crompton in a release. “These new trail upgrades will allow visitors and locals to safely access trails, neighbourhoods and businesses at the south end of Whistler and help us all work towards our Big Move Goal of 50 per cent of all trips within Whistler by active transportation by 2030.”

The total project budget was about $1.7 million, with $1.2 million coming from the provincial Resort Municipality Initiative.

Along with asphalt paving, the budget included installation of LED light poles, raised manholes, culvert upgrades and the installation of “beaver deceivers” to reduce the likelihood of flooding events.
