UPDATE: 31st Avenue Reconstruction Project to begin next month

Road Update

A major reconstruction project will be getting underway early next month, in the City’s downtown core.

Originally, the 31st Avenue Reconstruction project (between 29th Street and 30th Street) was scheduled to begin June 20. However, the work has been adjusted and is now scheduled to begin as early as Tuesday, July 5.

The project will include the replacement of aging infrastructure such as water main, storm sewer, and sanitary sewer utility lines, road pavement and sidewalk.

Access to the 31st Avenue surface parking lot will remain available from 29th Street.

Access to area businesses will remain open for pedestrians. Residents are encouraged to continue supporting local businesses.

Please slow down if traveling near the area and obey all traffic control signage. The City appreciates everyone’s patience while this major infrastructure project is being completed. 

The 31st Avenue Reconstruction Project is part of City Council’s commitment to replacing aged infrastructure that is the foundation of the services the City provides.
