The work is related to an upgrade to the legislature building’s water line.

“There will be advance warning signs in place on 53 Street and 49 Avenue to inform oncoming traffic of the road closure,”  For the safety of pedestrians, please obey signage for alternative walking routes,” Brian Thagard, Sergeant-at-Arms, said in a news release.
