Louise Avenue Reconstruction Project

Beginning on Monday, March 13, 2017, construction crews will begin work in the parking lots of the Empire Mall and Empire East as part of the initial phase of construction for the Louise Avenue Reconstruction Project.

Work on this project will include underground utility replacement, widening Louise Avenue to six lanes with a center median, and widening the 49th Street intersection to include dual left turn lanes on 49th Street.

During this initial phase of construction, traffic will be maintained through Louise Avenue. Traffic delays should be expected.

The work is anticipated to be complete by November 11, 2017.

Drivers are urged to use caution and reduce their speed while travelling near the construction area and may want to consider alternate routes.
