Traffic is now being re routed around the 2nd Ave. Overpass to allow work crews to complete maintenance on the heavily used bridge. Traffic restrictions are anticipated to be in place until April 11.
A maintenance project on Swift Current's 2nd Ave. Overpass will result in a series of traffic restrictions on the link to the Southside but also for motorists travelling on North Railway St.
Beginning on April 1 and continuing until approximately April 11, the City of Swift Current Engineering Services Department will be conducting maintenance to the 2nd Ave. Overpass.
The Work Zone for the maintenance includes North Railway St. directly under the Overpass. This will create the need for temporary traffic lights to be set up, restricting traffic to one lane at a time on an alternating basis.
In addition, traffic on 2nd Ave. N.E. travelling over the Overpass will be restricted, also to alternating single-lane use, with temporary traffic lights set up in that location as well.
The City of Swift Current asks motorists to avoid use of North Railway and the 2nd Ave. Overpass during the repairs if possible, as delays are anticipated.
