Lac La Biche County undertakes a wide variety of construction and engineering projects each year. These projects expand and improve our County's infrastructure, to better serve our residents and visitors.

This year’s capital budget lays a foundation for the future, with construction beginning on a $15 million Aquatics Centre at the Bold Center and a $20 million Main Street Lac La Biche revitalization project—both developments will be completed over multiple years. A further $5.4 million will be spent to finish the last phase of the Bold Center Sports Fields project, and $2.7 million (of which 73% is grant-funded) will be used to replace 5 bridges and large culverts. Lift stations will be built near Plamondon for $2 million to improve sewer services in the area.
