Beginning on Monday, August 13th at 7 a.m., the 200-and-300-blocks of 18th Street North will be closed to all traffic and will remain closed until late afternoon on Friday, September 7th. This closure is necessary to allow for the installation of a new water main and associated infrastructure in the area of 18th Street North at Parker Boulevard.

During the closure, southbound traffic on 18th Street North will be required to detour at McGregor Avenue and turn onto 19th Street North, then onto Fred Brown Way, before being able to turn back onto 18th Street North. Meanwhile, northbound traffic on 18th Street North will be required to detour onto Maple Avenue and head up to 16th Street North and then on to McGregor Avenue, before being able to turn back onto 18th Street North.

The detour route for heavy truck traffic will be 1st Street via Victoria Avenue & the Trans-Canada Highway, with heavy truck access to Parker Boulevard via McGregor Avenue. Local access provisions will be made for businesses within the area.
