Construction to Upgrade Maiden Lake Dike

Construction to upgrade the Maiden Lake Dike for flood mitigation is expected to begin mid-July and extend through to the end of October. The upgrades include raising and extending the dike to provide better protection to the adjacent commercial area as well as the Annex and part of Maintown in the event of a future flood. The closure will start where the Annex Dike intersects with the North Bridge and there will be no access under the bridge and the closure will continue to the intersection of 18th Street and 6th Avenue. 

Maiden Lake access will be restricted and not accessible to the public throughout the construction.

The City would like to thank the Natural Disaster Mitigation Program for the grant funding for this project.  The grant will cover 100% of the cost of the upgrade project. More information on the Natural Disaster Mitigation Program can be found here. 

Further details will be provided to the community as the project advances.
