NORTHBOUND TRAFFIC ON CONFEDERATION DRIVE MERGED TO ONE AT 22ND STREET

For immediate release: February 1, 2015 - 4:46pm
UT14-103

Traffic is being restricted on Confederation Drive northbound at 22nd Street due to a break on the water main.  City crews will be on-site making repairs beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 4, but the restriction is in place now due to damage that occurred on the roadway.  Traffic will squeeze to the curb lane for half of the block between 22nd Street and the main west entrance to the Confederation Park shopping mall. 

Both west entrances to the shopping centre remain open, but drivers are cautioned to expect delays in the area.  Some businesses in the area may be affected by the water service outage.

This is the second water main break at this location over the past month, but the cause or extent of the damage is unknown at this time.  The roadway is expected to reopen in the early-evening on Saturday, January 4, weather permitting and barring any unforeseen circumstances.  The City thanks drivers for their patience.

Drivers are reminded to allow extra time when travelling through the orange zone, watch for pedestrians and work crews, and for everyone’s safety, please obey all detours, signs and barriers.
