A section of Dominion Street will be closed to traffic starting on Wednesday morning (September 16). This closure is necessary to allow crews to conduct an important operation to connect the new downtown pool, currently under construction, to water and storm utilities.
Dominion Street will be closed to vehicle traffic between Fifth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, but there will continue to be sidewalk access for pedestrians. However, the sidewalk on the west side of Dominion Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenue will remain closed.
Residents are encouraged to use alternate routes. Please follow all on-street signage and directions from road crews.
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 of Prince George wishes to thank residents and businesses for their patience and understanding while this important operation takes place.
Please use caution when driving around road crews.
Bus routes affected
The road closure will affect the #5, #10, #15, #46, #47, and #55 bus routes, and will necessitate the temporary closure of the Dominion Street bus stop at 6th Avenue. Riders are asked instead to board at the Downtown Exchange located at 7th Avenue and Dominion Street, near the Four Seasons Leisure Pool. As buses will need to detour, delays are possible so Transit customers are asked to take extra time while travelling.
