Medicine Hat – Construction begins on Tuesday, July 9, closing through traffic at Kipling Street SE at 5th Ave SE, directly in front of the Canada Post Building. This major infrastructure upgrade provides the installation of new water and sewer mains to residents and businesses in the Spencer Street SE area.

Motorists are advised to plan routes in advance and to follow detours directing them around the construction area. During construction all area residents and businesses will continue to have access to their properties. All residents and businesses east of the construction zone can be accessed from the Kingsway Avenue SE intersection.

This intersection will remain closed until construction is completed. Completion is expected in August 2019, as long as weather cooperates and there are no unforeseen delays.
