Festival Square Reconstruction Set to Begin on 6th Street South
Starting Tuesday, September 7, 6 Street South will be closed from the intersection at 3 Avenue to the laneway just south of the Downtown BRZ office as construction on Festival Square is set to begin.
The laneway will remain open and there will be turnarounds in place on 6 Street and 3 Avenue. This project is going to be in progress for the next two to three months.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution in this area and follow posted detours.
In July, Lethbridge City Council voted 6-3 to proceed with a revised plan for Municipal Stimulus Program (MSP) funded projects which include the $1.71 million Festival Square Market Plaza, allowing Festival Square to proceed – without any City funding – to ensure that the project is delivered as an economic catalyst for downtown.
The new Festival Square Market Plaza will include an interactive stage, entry signs, decorative column lighting, programmable lighting and site furniture, as well as water/wastewater servicing and lane rehab.
More information on the vision of the project and the process behind the development of the conceptual designs can be found at https://getinvolvedlethbridge.ca/6524/widgets/25788/documents/44706
