The City of Swift Current wishes to advise residents and motorists that, beginning Tuesday, May 23, 2017, Cheadle Street East from Central Avenue North to 1st Avenue Northeast will be closed to motor vehicle traffic.


The closure will last approximately two weeks as the City continues the transfer of overhead electrical lines to underground infrastructure.

“This is the same project that caused a closure at Chaplin Street in late April,” explains Mitch Minken, Swift Current’s General Manager of Infrastructure & Operations. “Just like the Chaplin Street phase of the project, we do not anticipate this closure taking any longer than two weeks.”

The sidewalk and back alley entrances along Cheadle Street East between 1st Avenue Northeast and Central Avenue North will also be blocked.

As a result of the closures, a traffic detour will be available, directing eastbound traffic on Cheadle Street East to the north at Central Avenue North.

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