The City of Swift Current wishes to advise residents and motorists that, beginning Monday, April 24, 2017, Chaplin Street East from 1st Avenue Northeast to Central Avenue North will be closed to motor vehicle traffic.


The closure, which we anticipate will last approximately two weeks, is necessary to accommodate the transfer of Overhead Electrical Lines to underground infrastructure.

“This is part of an ongoing project to move our existing overhead lines underground,” said Mitch Minken, Swift Current’s General Manager of Infrastructure & Operations. “The overhead lines are located in the alleys; however, we need to close Chaplin Street to trench the lines under the road.”

The Chaplin Street entrances to the alley located between 1st Avenue Northeast and Central Avenue North, on both sides of Chaplin Street, will also be closed to traffic during this time.

As a result of the closures, traffic detours will be available, with westbound traffic on Chaplin Street East having the option of turning north or south at 1st Avenue Northeast. For motorists who wish to continue in a westbound direction, we recommend heading north on 1st Avenue Northeast, then continuing west at Herbert Street East.

Upon completion of the work at Chaplin Street East, the project will continue south down the alley towards Cheadle Street East.

The City would like to thank residents and motorists in advance for their patience and cooperation.
