Description:
City crews have begun the preparation work on E 8th Avenue and Clark Drive for the underground water main construction along E 8th Avenue from Keith Street to Mclean Drive. The underground construction will commence in late June 2018 with anticipated completion in July 2018. This project will replace an aging water main along E 8th Avenue. Typical working hours are Monday to Friday, 7:00am to 3:30pm with extended hours as needed. The anticipated duration of underground water main work is approximately 4 weeks. Surface restoration will follow. E 8th Avenue will be closed during construction from Keith St to Mclean Dr with access retained for local traffic only. Street parking in and around construction zones will be temporarily removed and will be normalized when it is safe to do so. The City will endeavour to provide as much residential parking as possible after working hours. Sidewalks will remain open and accessible along E 8th Avenue for the majority of the time. Please note that the schedule is approximate and may vary depending on weather and other dynamic factors. The City thanks residents for their patience as we complete these infrastructure upgrades.
