Post Date:07/17/2020 11:40 AM

Medicine Hat – Construction to replace aging water and sewer infrastructure on Division Avenue South continues into the final phase of the project. 

On July 23, the intersection of 10 Street SE/SW on Division Avenue will be closed. 

Detours will be in place and motorists are reminded to obey all traffic signs and detours related to ongoing construction.

This final phase is necessary to remove and replace an air release valve and water vault. Residents can expect this closure to last until August 6 subject to weather conditions and unforeseen delays.

Once this phase is complete, work within the roadway of Division Avenue will be complete for this project. The result is restored underground infrastructure and improved isolation boundaries that enhances the water distribution system.

Crews completed the work of the Division Avenue project in segments while facilitating continued access to local businesses and residences during construction.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary City construction and infrastructure renewal and repair work continues throughout the City. Residents are reminded to allow crews space to work safely, and to adhere to physical distancing standards by staying at least two metres away from City workers.

The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their continued patience and understanding as the necessary upgrades are completed to ensure safe and reliable infrastructure for years to come.
