MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw advises that site restrictions are in place surrounding the Seventh Avenue SW bridge to allow for a planned rehabilitation project.

At a February 22, 2021 special meeting, Moose Jaw City Council approved a motion to spend $832,032 to rehabilitate the bridge, which has been closed to traffic since it suffered structural damage in 2015.

Harbuilt Construction of Moosomin, SK has been awarded the repair contract and has installed barricades around the bridge to protect residents and workers throughout the project.

Contractors and City officials will conduct site meetings this week to finalize a construction schedule and traffic plan. Once finalized, the City will issue those updates to media, in addition to the City’s website, social media channels and app.

During construction there is no pedestrian access to Wakamow Valley/Great Trail from the Seventh Avenue SW bridge. The City of Moose Jaw and Wakamow Valley Authority recommend using Ninth Avenue SW to access Connor Park, and Fourth Avenue SW to access Wakamow east of Seventh Avenue SW. The Wakamow Valley Trail map showing the project location and Wakamow access points is below.
