When: Wednesday, May 27 – Friday, July 3. The closure is 24/7.

Where: West 32nd Avenue between Ward Road and Vivian Street. (Details on the road closure and detour route are below.)

Why: As part of our Northwater Pipeline installation, our contractor, Garney Construction, will be installing an 84” casing pipe through the intersection to prepare for the 66” conduit installation beginning in this area, January 2021. We requested to complete this portion of work earlier than anticipated due to the lighter traffic volume associated with COVID-19. We also hope this timing will present less of an impact to local businesses.

What to Expect:

  • Variable Message Signs were placed in the area Tuesday, May 19.
  • All residences and businesses within the closure will have continuous access.
  • Working hours are Monday-Saturday, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Asphalt and concrete restoration will be completed by July 3, with the road open by July 4.

Detour Map & Details:

  • Eastbound Detour: Traffic will be detoured at Applewood Shopping center to West 38th Avenue.
  • Westbound Detour: Traffic will be detoured at Simms Street with the closure at Vivian Street. Local traffic access only.
