Road Closure

The construction in the Capital Area to upgrade the Legislature’s water line infrastructure will result in a road closure in downtown Yellowknife. The road will be closed on 49th Avenue from 53rd Street down to the alleyway between 52nd Street and 51st Street. This closure comes into effect Saturday, July 25th, and will last for approximately six weeks.

There will be advance warning signs in place on 53rd Street and 49th Avenue to inform oncoming traffic of the road closure. For the safety of pedestrians, please obey signage for alternative walking routes.
