Sewer replacement construction downtown

A broken sewer line will mean some disruptions downtown over the next couple of weeks.

City crews will be digging up the roadway in the vicinity of the City Furniture building downtown over the next couple of weeks.

They’re replacing a ruptured sewer main that runs underneath the building and re-routing it around the building.

City public works manager Darren Komonoski said the work should take about two weeks, with paving to follow after those two weeks.

The construction will happen in phases around the building; Komonoski said neighbourhood business owners were consulted before construction started.
