2nd Avenue West and Diefenbaker Bridge Construction

Update: The 2nd Avenue project will begin Monday, June 8, 2015. For a detailed list of restrictions in place for the 2nd Avenue Repairs please see the Daily Road Report page.  The Diefenbaker Bridge project schedule is expected in July. A press conferences will be held to announce details. 

The City of Prince Albert will be starting an Underground Utility Replacement project on 2nd Ave West and Diefenbaker Bridge repairs this summer. Work is expected to start after the May long weekend and be complete by the September long weekend.

With no alternative river crossing, detours and delays are unavoidable. It is the City’s intention to do everything it can to coordinate the two projects in order to mitigate  traffic congestion. For the duration of the projects it is expected that north-south traffic will always be flowing (although will be restricted to one lane each way). East-west traffic will also be restricted at times at 12th and 15th Street and closed at 13th and 14th Street.

The City is currently in the process of securing contractors for these projects and more conclusive schedules will be made available once finalized.

Lift Station Upgrades
Three of seven lift stations will be upgraded this year (four were completed in 2014). The total project cost is $6.9 million with support from the Federal Gas Tax Program.

2016 Paving Program
The City will once again be pursuing paving through the annual $4 million Paving Program ($189 Base Tax introduced in 2013 to annually fund roadways paving). 152 blocks have been paved in Prince Albert to date. This will also include some water and sewer main replacements and repair. Please check back for updates on the streets targeted for completion this year.
