Intersection of 6 Avenue SE, 2 Street SE to be paved over the weekend

Medicine Hat – The intersection of Sixth Avenue SE and Second Street SE will close this evening to accommodate oiling and paving on Saturday, June 8 and part of Sunday, June 9. Weather permitting, the City anticipates the intersection will re-open later in the day on Sunday. This work is part of the 3 St SE Downtown Utility and Surface Upgrades project.

Second Street SE between South Railway Street and Fifth Avenue SE will temporarily change to two-way traffic over this two-day period. These two blocks will be open for local traffic only. Sidewalks will remain open for pedestrian access during construction.

The intersection will be fenced off for the public’s safety. Motorists are asked to obey all construction and detour signage in the area.

The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding as this necessary work is completed.
