A section of Dominion Street downtown will be closed to vehicles for several weeks while crews work on the water and storm sewer connections for the city's new pool under construction.
Dominion Street will be closed to traffic between Fifth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, but sidewalks on the east side of the street and part of the west side of the street will remain open to pedestrians, a city press release said on Monday.
"The project is expected to take about two weeks to complete. Businesses in the area, including the new Hyatt Place Hotel nearby, have been notified," the city press release said. "Residents are encouraged to use alternate routes. Please follow all on-street signage and directions from road crews. The City of Prince George wishes to thank residents and businesses for their patience and understanding while this important operation takes place."
The road closure will impact the No. 5, 10, 15, 46, 47 and 55 bus routes downtown. The bus stop on Dominion Street at Sixth Avenue will be closed for the duration of the work.
"Riders are asked instead to board at the Downtown Exchange located at (Seventh) Avenue and Dominion Street, near the Four Seasons Leisure Pool," the press release said. "As buses will need to detour, delays are possible so transit customers are asked to take extra time while travelling."
