Effective at 8 a.m. on Saturday, June 17, Scenic Drive North will be closed between Stafford Drive North and 26 Avenue North to install underground electrical lines.
Motorists travelling southbound on Scenic Drive North will be detoured to 13 Street North while motorists on northbound Scenic Drive North will be detoured to St. Edward Boulevard North. A map of the detour route is available for download.
This closure is expected to remain in effect until Monday, June 19 at 3 p.m.
The City of Lethbridge has started work 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.
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.
