The video that Mayor Jeff Genung said would be posted has surfaced.

In the two-minute clip, people will hear Alberta Transportation minister Ric McIver confirm the Hwy. 1A-22 interchange is in the government's budget. To the disappointment of many, it doesn't confirm when construction will begin.

It does, however, reconfirm what Airdrie-Cochrane MLA Peter Guthrie has been saying all along. The final design has to wait until pipeline right-of-way agreements are struck, and an archeological dig on the Cochrane Ranche Historic Site is completed. 

That out of the way, the design will be finalized, and the project will go to tender.

"Let me assure you, it's in the budget," said Minister McIver. "I'm personally anxious to get it done, and Alberta Transportation wants to get the work done, and I think from what I hear from you, the good folks of Cochrane want to get it done, too. We're all on the same page."

MLA Guthrie says he's been forthright in his updates to the community.

"I've been trying to be upfront with everybody in the community. I want this project as bad as anyone."

He says it will not only deal with serious traffic congestion problems but removes an obstacle regularly faced by first responders.

Mayor Genung previously provided CochraneNow insight on the meeting and said a video was forthcoming.
