UPDATE 1: The City says due to a water break residents should avoid 52 avenue to 56 avenue and 39 street to 43 street at this time. Water has been shut off at Dr. James W Hemstock Assisted Living, Hearthstone Place and Points West Living. Dr. Cooke Extended Care is not affected by this issue.
The City says all three are on drinking water advisory. Also, residents who’re affected have been notified. City crews and contractors are currently working on the water break.
Roads are flooded along the intersections of 52 avenue, 41 street and 42 street near Lloyd Mall. The entrance to the Hemstock’s parking lot is also covered with water.
It’s not clear what is causing the flooding at this time. City crews are working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, it’s advised to drive a different route to avoid wetting the underside of your vehicle.
