The Regional District of East Kootenay will celebrate the completion of one of the largest construction projects in its history.
They’re holding an official completion event for the West Fernie Servicing and Restructure project at 1 pm Tuesday afternoon at the corner of McDonald Avenue and Mill Street.
The project expanded the City of Fernie’s municipal boundaries to officially welcome properties on the south side of Highway 3 into the community.
It also saw $16 million worth of infrastructure work completed.
The event will feature speeches from local government representatives and a provincial minister.
