Construction on the 2nd Avenue Downtown Redevelopment project is scheduled to start Monday, June 10, 2024. Phase 1 of the project encompasses the 200 block of 2nd Avenue West. Specifically, 2nd Ave West from the 4-way stop at the Dental Clinic to 3 Street West at  ATB and the Town Office.

Traffic will be rerouted for approximately 6-8 weeks. Parking is still available on the side-streets and in the Town parking lot behind the Library. Pedestrian access will be maintained with temporary boardwalk sidewalks. Residents are encouraged to continue to support the businesses along the construction area(s).

This project is one of three projects that were successful with their application for PrairiesCan funding provided through the Canada Coal Transition Initiative-Infrastructure Fund (CCTI-Fund). The Hanna Downtown project received a federal investment of more than $4.1 million.
