Special Announcement
Road Closure In Effect

‚Äč7th Ave Closed May 29 through end of the week. Please see details.

We have a contractor who will be doing sewer main repairs over the next few weeks. 6 of the locations requiring repairs are on 7thAvenue West between 5th Street and 9th Street (see attached map for details). The current plan is that these repairs would be started on Monday of next week, and start at the west end of 7thAvenue (Spot 6 on the map) working east.
Due to the nature of the repair work, we would need to close parts of 7th Avenue to everything except local traffic while work is ongoing. The sidewalks will not be impacted, but  the contractor will be instructed to take extra caution with barricades due to the high volume of student pedestrians that use 7th Avenue. We plan to close the street from the east service road to just before Semchuk Drive on Monday, and then areas between Semchuk Drive and 5th Street for the remainder of the week. If the work goes more slowly, this may be adjusted slightly. School buses will be able to access the bus lane while the work is being done, but they may need to take an alternate route to get there.
Although it is not shown on the attachment, there are also some areas on 9th Avenue West beside Carpenter High that will need to be repaired. This area is scheduled to be done immediately after the section on 7th Avenue, as both of these streets are scheduled for paving later this summer.
