Sewer main construction - bulldozer and truck

Knight Street Water and Sewer Upgrades

We are replacing the water main, installing a separated sewer main, and repaving the road surface on Knight Street between 13th and 37th avenues.

Work will take place between 13th and 37th avenues, with other work happening on multiple side streets.

This project will improve water and sewer main infrastructure in the area. Once replaced, the pipes are expected to serve the neighbourhood for 100 years.

We recognize the impacts of this project on the neighbourhood and commuters travelling through the area. We appreciate your understanding as we complete this important infrastructure project.

How this project may affect you

Construction will occur on Knight Street and will occasionally impact adjacent streets. Each block may be impacted by construction for several months. The construction work is being carefully planned to limit the overall impact to residents, businesses, and road users. During construction, one travel lane in each direction will stay open on Knight Street.
