Intersection Closure at Division Avenue N and 8 Street

Detour in place August 7 – September 21 for Water and Sanitary Main Replacement

Post Date:08/02/2018 9:52 AM

Medicine Hat – Starting on Tuesday, August 7 the intersection of Division Avenue N and 8th Street will be closed for replacement of a sanitary manhole. This work is part of a Water and Sanitary Main Replacement Project occurring along 8 Street NE. Due to the extensive nature of the work, traffic must be diverted from the work zone to meet safety requirements.

During this time, the 8 Street NW business area will remain open to traffic and can be accessed from the detour following 7 Street NW to Tweed Avenue NW. 8 Street NE and Division Avenue can continue to be accessed as shown on the attached map.

Traffic accommodations will be in place:

  • 8th Street NE remains open at 1 St NE at this time 
  • 8th Street access from 2nd Ave NE is not affected by this closure 
  • Work within the 8th Street and 2nd Avenue NE intersection adjacent to McCoy High School will be complete prior to the start of the school year. 


Once the work in the Division Avenue intersection is completed, water and sanitary main replacement will continue along the 8 Street NE residential area between Division Avenue and 2 Avenue NE intersections. Work will occur in one-block phases. 

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank everyone for your cooperation and understanding during this major project to replace aging infrastructure. Please drive safely around work crews and obey all signage.
