Due to road redevelopment work that is currently underway on 51 Avenue, temporary road closures will start this upcoming Tuesday, October 11 at:

•The intersection of 51 Avenue and 50Street; and

•Along 50Street, a half a block north and south of the 51 Avenue and 50 Street intersection.

Detour signs will be posted. The temporary road closure will remain in place until work at the intersection is completed. Motorists are reminded to please drive with caution near construction zones and to observe road signs and traffic safety personnel.

Businesses Remain Open and Parking is Available

During the construction on 51Avenue, pedestrian access to businesses along that street remains open and public parking is available in the following two municipal parking lots which are both in very close proximity and walking distance from 51 Avenue:

•The parking lot on the south side of 51 Avenue with access from the alley at 51 Street.

•The parking lot at the corner of 51 Street and 52 Avenue (across from the Ponoka United Church). On-street parking is also available throughout the rest of downtown Ponoka during construction with the exception of:

•51 Avenue(between 50 Street and 51Street); and

•A half block north and south of the 51 Avenue and 50 Street intersection.

The Town and contractor are continuing to work closely with businesses to coordinate pedestrian access to affected businesses on 51 Avenue throughout the entire project.
