Motorists are being reminded that many streets will be closed this weekend as part of Summer In The City.

Randy Reimer is Head of Public Works. He says beginning Thursday at 7 am, Reimer Avenue will be closed from Elmdale Street to Main Street and from Main Street to First Street. This is to accommodate the midway being set up along those two blocks.

Then Thursday at 6 pm, Main Street will be closed from Friesen Avenue to Barkman Avenue. It will remain closed for the duration of the festival and reopen Sunday at midnight.

With Steinbach Credit Union hosting a pancake breakfast Friday, Lumber Avenue will be closed between Main Street and Elmdale Street that morning. The closure will be in effect from 7 am to 9:30 am.

Then on Saturday, Lumber Avenue will be closed from Main Street to First Street from noon to 9 pm to accommodate Summer In The City festivities. Also, Main Street will shut down from Friesen Avenue to Brandt Street on Saturday from 3 pm to 9 pm for the annual car show. As a result, there will be no parking allowed along that stretch.

According to Reimer, the only city-owned parking lot that will be off limits this weekend is the one at city hall behind the post office. Reimer says it will be largely closed because of the midway.

Meanwhile, a detour will be set up for truck traffic that would otherwise drive down Highway 52. The suggested route is Brandt Street to McKenzie Avenue or vice versa.
