Asphalt plant part of Doors Open YYC initiative
Imagine getting a chance to meet the chefs behind our roads – the cooks who concoct the cement that lie beneath our feet?
It's part of a unique behind-the-scenes opportunity for Calgarians, who will get a chance to visit the City of Calgary's asphalt plant as part of the fourth annual Doors Open YYC event later this month.
Located just off 25th Avenue S.E., the plant is one of 42 sites participating in the citywide initiative, scheduled for Sept 26 to 27.
"We felt that it was extremely important for Calgarians to showcase how the City of Calgary operates, how professional and qualified our staff are, how we spend taxpayer dollars and to show Calgarians and visitors how the City is conscientious of the environment while delivering service," said Slawa Gruszczynska, cultural diversity co-ordinator in charge of co-ordinating all of the City of Calgary sites for Doors Open YYC.
