Prince George’s new $42-million downtown pool will soon be connected to water and storm utilities this week.
As a result, the city says Dominion Street between Fifth and Seventh Avenues will be closed starting tomorrow morning (Sept. 16) to allow crews to conduct the operation.
Six BC Transit routes are going to be impacted by this phase in the pool’s construction, to which adjustments will be made and the Dominion Street/Sixth Avenue bus stop will be temporarily closed.
- 5 - Victoria
- 10 - Spruceland Connector
- 15 - Downtown / UNBC
- 46 - Queensway
- 47 - Queensway
- 55 - Victoria
“Riders are asked instead to board at the Downtown Exchange located at Seventh Avenue and Dominion Street, near the Four Seasons Leisure Pool,” a city release states.
“As buses will need to detour, delays are possible so Transit customers are asked to take extra time while travelling.”
Sidewalks, however, will remain open for the public to use, excluding the west side of Dominion Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues by the Hyatt Place hotel.
Commuters who frequent this section of Prince George are asked to plan alternate routes for the next two weeks and to obey all street signage in the area.
All affected businesses have been notified, the city adds.
