Phase 2 is underway
Phase 1 of this project, the lining of the sanitary main, is now complete. The temporary sanitary bypass line has been removed from 10 Avenue S.W. and the rehabilitation of the road surface at 12 and 15 St will be completed soon. Regular traffic patterns will resume in this area.
Construction work has begun on the water systems located at 10 Avenue and 14 Street S.W. Completion is expected by mid February, weather permitting. The required excavation area for this repair is substantial, and as a result, this intersection at 14 street and 10 avenue S.W. remains closed. Water Services does not anticipate water service disruptions during these repairs.

14 Street at 10 Avenue S.W. will be closed to all traffic beginning Saturday, Jan. 15 through until mid-February to allow for major water and sanitary utility upgrades.
To ensure the continuing integrity of the sanitary pipe along 10 Avenue (between 12 and 15 Streets S.W.), the pipe will be reinforced with a liner across from 14 Street to 13 Street S.W.
In order to carry out this process and maintain sanitary service to nearby businesses, Water Services must install a temporary bypass sanitary line and pump stations. This line will be located above ground and run down the middle of 10 Avenue S.W., crossing over 14 Street, and in turn requiring the full closure.
Repair work will follow on the water main located at 10 Avenue and 14 Street S.W. for a period of approximately three to four weeks, weather permitting.
The required excavation area for this repair is substantial, and as a result, the intersection will be closed. Water Services does not anticipate water or sanitary service disruptions during these repairs.
Alternate routes include Crowchild Trail and 11 Street S.W.
Traffic engineers will be adjusting signal timings and adding additional turning lanes out of the downtown core to reduce delays.
Pedestrians travelling southbound on 14 Street will be directed to use the sidewalk on the west side of 14 Street to Westbound 10 Avenue to Southbound 15 Street to eastbound 11 Avenue and those travelling northbound will be directed to use westbound 11 Avenue to northbound 15 Street to eastbound 10 Avenue to sidewalk on the west side of northbound 14 Street bypass the closure.
Cyclists will be directed to use the same detour route but obviously cyclists are to use the roadway and not the sidewalk.
