Calgary, AB,

Lower deck of Centre Street Bridge & Memorial Drive are now open

The lower bridge deck of the Center Street bridge and all lanes of Memorial Drive have been reopened to traffic. Motorists are reminded to drive with care, especially in this area, as patches of ice may remain.

An early morning watermain break resulted in traffic disruption during this morning’s commute.  The lower deck of the Centre Street Bridge and eastbound Memorial Drive were closed due to pooling and freezing water.  As an interim measure, westbound Memorial Drive was altered to two way traffic.

Water Services quickly turned off the water source while Roads crews began to clear water and ice from the roadways. Water Services has begun to repair the break, located in the 100 block of 8 Avenue NW. Water service to approximately 20 homes has been disrupted. Emergency water has been supplied for the affected homes.

Further traffic disruptions are not expected while repairs are underway. The City would like to thank Calgarians for their patience.
