Watermain renewal on 5 Avenue South – Road closure

Starting this afternoon, the intersection at 5 Avenue South and 7 Street South will be closed in all directions so crews can continue to work on the watermain renewal project.

Business access will be maintained but parking in the area will be limited. Motorists are asked to drive with caution in this area and to follow posted detours.

The intersection at 8 Street South and 5 Avenue South and westbound lanes in the 800 block of 5 Avenue South will be open to traffic.

The watermain renewal project will improve service to existing businesses in the area and support the infrastructure needed for the new Lethbridge Regional Park 'n' Ride Transit Terminal over the next six to 12 months.

The full project schedule, detour routes and a parking map is available at
