12 Street NE / 4 Avenue NE Intersection Construction
Medicine Hat – On Monday, June 8, the intersection of 12 Street NE and 4 Avenue NE will be closed as part of a construction project to replace aging water and sewer infrastructure in Northeast Crescent Heights.
The project began in May and mainly impacted local traffic in residential areas. The active work zone to complete necessary upgrades now moves into the high volume intersection, which is expected to be closed until mid-July, subject to weather conditions and unforeseen delays.
Detours will be in place and motorists are reminded to obey all traffic signs and detours related to ongoing construction. Traffic accommodations will maintain access to local businesses and residences during construction.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, necessary City construction and infrastructure renewal and repair work will continue 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.
