BE AWARE - A reminder to all residents that construction will begin in April on the Main Street Improvement Project.

REMINDER: Main Street Improvement Project to begin construction soon

Road closures and detours will be in effect, beginning mid-late April

  • Mar. 29, 2017 9:00 a.m.

A reminder to residents that the Main Street Improvement Project will begin construction in the coming weeks, and road usage will be impacted.

To reduce impact on parking and downtown businesses, construction will come forward in five stages. The first stage will start at the intersection of 50 Avenue and Highway 2A.

Stage one is estimated to start in mid-April, but City officials are asking residents to begin preparing for the construction. This means some businesses, employees and owners will have to access alternate parking for a number of weeks.

Road closures will be in effect at the 50 Street intersection, 49 Street, and Highway 2A.  Sidewalks remain open and business access is unaffected.  Pedestrian crossings will be in place as shown. Parking signs will be installed around the project area to direct motorist to nearby public parking lots.
