Stretch of Yellowknife’s 49 Avenue to be closed from Monday

A stretch of Yellowknife’s 49 Avenue between 50 Street and 51 Street will be closed from Monday.

A water pipe repair in the Henry Larson Building is the cause of the road closure, the Yellowknife RCMP detachment said in a news release on Monday. The City of Yellowknife confirmed the work would be going ahead.

The stretch of road runs in front of Yellowknife’s RCMP detachment, near City Hall, and residents must plan to park further away from the building than normal, the release continued.


RCMP will continue offering emergency response and investigative services, as well as communication operations. The front counter at the detachment will still be open from 9am until noon daily.

The road will remain closed until further notice, Canada North Projects said.
