This year, the City of Airdrie Water Services department will be installing new water main and sanitary sewer pipe along Main Street. During this project sections of Main Street will be completely closed. We encourage motorists to use 8 St. and Edmonton Trail as alternative north-south routes during construction.
The full closure of Main Street versus a partial closure
allows the project to be:
• Less expensive
• Completed sooner
The water and sanitary sewer pipe needs to be replaced as the current system is reaching the end of its lifecycle.
This project will prepare us for future growth and help ensure that our
infrastructure does not fail at inopportune times. Detour information will be
posted here for each phase of construction.

The Main St. water main & sanitary/storm sewer upgrades from Veterans BV. to Elk Hill were scheduled to be completed by Oct. 31, 2019, however underground conditions and uncooperative weather has put the contractor behind schedule. Due to this delay, the City has made adjustments to our construction timelines.
We understand that this construction has had an impact on residents and businesses. We thank you for your understanding and patience and we will continue to provide updates as we have them.
