The City of Lethbridge will be starting work this week to replace existing electrical overhead lines with underground lines along the south side of 26 Avenue North, from Stafford Drive North to 43 Street North.
This work will require eight intersections along 26 Avenue North to be partially or fully closed at different points between May 31 and October 4, 2017. Only one intersection will be closed at any given time.
The contractor for this project, Vicary Resources Inc., will begin work at the Stafford Drive North intersection, which will be closed from May 31 to June 2. Over the next four months, work will progress eastward along 26 Avenue North and will affect the intersections at:
- Scenic Drive North
- 13 Street North
- 18 Street North
- 28 Street North
- 36 Street North
- 39 Street North
- 43 Street North
Detours and intersection closures will be clearly marked as the project progresses, and additional advisories will be issued in advance of each intersection closure or partial closure. Motorists are asked to drive with caution in affected areas and use alternative routes when intersection closures and detours are in effect.
