Work Continues on 5th Street SW into September

Motorists are advised to drive carefully around detours when school begins

Post Date:08/28/2019 3:09 PM
Medicine Hat – With school about to resume for the fall, the City would like to advise motorists that work on 5th Street SW just north of Medicine Hat High School, Herald School and the Centre for Academic and Personal Excellence (CAPE) will remain ongoing for a few more weeks. Motorists are advised to drive carefully around this area when school begins and follow detours in place.

A major water and sewer rehabilitation project that started in July will be extended into September for additional work that is required to complete the project. 

Road closures are along 5th Street SW from Division Avenue SW to Second Avenue SW including intersections. 

The schools have been informed and accommodations have been made to access parking, student and bus drop-off locations and sidewalk access around these locations. 

The City apologizes for this inconvenience and thanks everyone for your understanding and patience as this major project is nearing completion.
