The City of Medicine Hat’s Environmental Utilities and Municipal Works Departments undertook two major construction projects on South Railway Street in 2017. These important projects replaced aging infrastructure, meeting Council’s strategic priority to ensure high-quality, well-maintained and affordable municipal infrastructure, with attention to our deep utilities and transportation network. The Downtown Project was completed in October 17, 2017. Work is now underway on the South Flats portion.
On April 10 and 11, the Contractor will mill the asphalt road surface along South Railway SE between the Allowance Avenue Overpass and Kingsway Drive SE. During this time, traffic will be reduced to one lane in active work sections. These sections will be short and traffic will be controlled with flag people to reduce delay.
Motorists and pedestrians are reminded to obey all traffic signs/signals and drive safely around work crews. We would also like to thank everyone for your support and patience as we undertake this important project.

The Photo Gallery provides an up close look at work being done, and lets everyone see the deep utilities infrastructure that runs under our streets and provides us with water, sanitary and storm services. Photos have been added throughout the construction on South Railway Street.
