Residents of the Alfred Street area on the city's east side are receiving notices today that there is going to be a water disruption for them starting on the morning of Monday October 24, as the city looks to continue repairs on the water main on a stretch of the street between 8th Avenue East and 10th Avenue East.
A notice posted to the City of Prince Rupert website notes that the water main has been identified as beyond its life cycle and is in need of extensive repair work.
As a result of the work required next week its estimated that water supply disruption will last for a 48 hour period.
The road closure in the area is also having an impact on the travels of Prince Rupert Transit, with the bus stop in the 800 block now out of service during the length of the work ahead. As a result, the bus route will follow 8th Avenue East, up Bacon and then down 10th Avenue East.

and will see residents lose access to water for 48 hours
starting on Monday morning.
The City first began working on the street on the east side a week or so ago, just the latest in trouble spots around the city where the city's infrastructure is starting to show its age. Just a few blocks away from the latest challenge, City work crews continue to work on a similar issue along Frederick Street between 11th Street and Hays Cove Road.
