5 Ave SE Infrastructure Upgrade begins April 22

Medicine Hat – Construction begins Monday, April 22, 2019 on the next phase of the 5 Avenue SE infrastructure upgrade. The project involves the installation of a water main on 5 Avenue SE between 7 Street SE and 9 Street SE, including surface upgrades within each intersection.

This project will also see a water and sewer replacement on 6 Street SE between 4 Avenue SE and 5 Avenue SE once the 2018/2019 school year for Alexandra Middle School has concluded at the end of June.


Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of August 2019. Area businesses will be maintaining their regular hours and will be accessible during construction.

A temporary above ground water connection may be required to supply water to the area residents. Full water and sewer services will be operational throughout the duration of construction with the exception of emergency activities and scheduled short duration interruptions.

The contractor will be strategically placing a perimeter fence to ensure public safety and pedestrian access within the construction area.

The Environmental Utilities Department 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.
