The City of Merritt would like to remind the general public of the ongoing construction work on Coldwater Avenue between Wilson Street and Chapman Street. As back to school quickly approaches, please be mindful of road closures, detours and delays in this area and plan your route accordingly. Students commuting to Merritt Secondary School should give themselves plenty of extra time to arrive at school on time in the morning. Those who arrive at the main entrance should do so via Canford Avenue from River Street, and those who arrive from the rear should do so via Canford Avenue from Main Street. Both vehicular and pedestrian traffic must adhere to all Traffic Control direction, construction signage and speed regulations at all times. This will ensure the safety of the public and the City’s employees.
We thank you for your continual patience and cooperation during this infrastructure upgrade project.
