COTR to begin construction on new access road


College of the Rockies will be beginning construction on a secondary access road that will provide a second entrance and exit for the campus. The new road will be located on college property, and will enable COTR to host larger events, as traffic congestion is currently a limiting factor on event size. The road extension will prioritize safety with streetlights, CCTV, crosswalks, and speed bumps. “This road extension has been on the College’s capital plan for a very long time, and we are grateful to the Province for providing the funding to move forward with construction this year,” said COTR Director, Facilities Allan Knibbs. “Creating a secondary access road to the campus makes the campus even more walkable and addresses safety concerns should we ever be faced with an emergency.”
