Main Street road closure planned for July 26-29
Demolition work at Columbus Park is largely complete. The existing clock tower is expected to be removed sometime during the week of July 26 and provided to the Spruce Grove and District Agricultural Society for future display.
The next phase of the redevelopment will include surface and ground preparation, followed by underground utility work. This will result in an increase in activity and machinery at the site. As well, additional traffic and pedestrian control signage, and some informational signage about the redevelopment project, will be going up at the site.
Anticipated road closure – July 26-29
Main Street, between First Avenue and McLeod Avenue, is expected to be closed to traffic from July 26 to July 29. Traffic control and detour signage will be in place. Local traffic will still have access (ex: for deliveries).
Upcoming sidewalk closure – starting July 26
The sidewalk on the west side of Columbus Park will be closed starting July 26 and is expected to remain closed for the duration of the project. Pedestrian traffic will be accommodated and signage will be posted.
Upcoming parking closure – starting July 26
It has been determined that the angle parking on the west side of Columbus Park will be needed by the contractor as a storage/laydown area for materials and equipment so it will be closed starting July 26. The need for this space will be re-evaluated on a monthly basis.
Updates regarding construction and related impacts will be provided throughout the project.
