Downtown Construction Impacts

The following construction projects are taking place in the downtown core of St. Albert from April to October 2022. 

Impacts will include the following:

  • Partial road closures and detours that may take place for vehicles and pedestrians on single sections of the roadways at a time.
  • Necessary on-street parking restrictions within work zones.
  • Potential for water being shut off during off-peak hours for the watermain line replacement which will be communicated at least 72 hours in advance to those businesses and residents who are impacted.

Although there will be partial road closures and detours that will limit on-street parking during construction, pedestrian access will be maintained as best possible to all businesses. Public parking is available across from St. Albert Place, as well as satellite parking locations
