Road Closure - 13 Street North

Effective Tuesday, July 4 at 9 a.m., 13 Street North will be closed to traffic at the 26 Avenue North intersection.

This closure is necessary as part of a four-month project 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. Weather permitting, 13 Street North will reopen the morning of Saturday, July 8.

Information for Lethbridge Transit passengers:
During this road closure, Route 20 buses will be detoured at 18 Avenue North and will access the North Transit Terminal via 23 Street North/26 Avenue North.

This project requires intersections along 26 Avenue North to be partially or fully closed at different points until early October, 2017. Only one intersection will be closed at any given time.

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.
