Lane closures on Gaetz Avenue for water leak repairs

(Red Deer, Alberta)

The two far left lanes on Gaetz Avenue southbound between 49 Street and 50 Street are closed while crews work to repair one of two water leaks in the area. The leaks are contained to the west end of downtown on 49 Street between 49 Avenue and 50 Avenue, and a section near 55 Avenue in West Park.

Water is shut off at four homes in the West Park neighborhood for an undetermined amount of time while the repair is underway. The affected residents were notified with hand delivered letters.

The leaks were likely caused by high water pressure in the area as a result of a tripped breaker at the Water Treatment Plant this morning. While the issue at the plant was resolved quickly, a spike in water pressure can potentially result in leaks.
