MOOSE JAW – The City of Moose Jaw advises that construction under the 2022 Water Main Replacement Program continues at the following locations:

1st Ave NW – Caribou St. W to Laurier St. : Construction, including paving, is complete on the 800, 900 and 1000 blocks of 1st Avenue NW and the Ross St. and Oxford St. intersections are open. Beginning Monday, August 29, the Hall St. intersection will open and construction extend from Hall St. to MacDonald St., with the Saskatchewan St. intersection closing during construction.

Grandview St W – 6th Ave SW to 10th Ave SW: Effective August 6, water main replacement on Grandview St. from 6th Ave SW – 10th Ave SW was completed. 1010m of new pvc pipe was installed and 985m of road was remediated. 

Main St. S – Home St. to Grandview St.: Construction has extended from Home St. to Grandview St. The Home St. intersection is open to traffic, while Iroquois St., Coteau St. and Elsom St. intersections are closed. This closure impacts southbound truck routes to Highway 2. Southbound truck traffic is being detoured to 9th Ave SW so that Highway 2 can be accessed from Highway 363. Please note that this includes all delivery and truck traffic, detours are currently in place to help guide traffic back towards 9th Ave SW.  The City reminds area residents that vehicles are not allowed in construction areas.

Grandview St. E from Main St. S to 1st Ave SE – Beginning Wednesday, August 31, crews working on Main St. South will extend the construction zone to include Grandview St. E from Main St. S to 1st Ave SE. 1st Ave SE will remain open, but all southbound traffic wishing to access Highway 2 south will need to use 9th Avenue SW. Detours will be in place and detour signage will be posted along Manitoba St./Manitoba Expressway to alert heavy truck traffic to the detours.

Effective June 15, water main replacement construction was completed on Saskatchewan St. E from Main St. to 3rd NE. 475m of pvc water line was installed, and 420m of road was rebuilt and paved.
