Bear Street Construction
Banffites! If you’re headed to Bear Street, stop and ask a Bear Street Ambassador for the best route to your destination because there will be multiple closures this week, or check the map on signs at each entrance for closures. Please be courteous with the staff as they are trying to help you get to your destination as easily as possible. Maps at each entrance are updated daily and the sidewalk closures change every day as the construction crew connects water and sewer mains with each building. For complete project information and schedules, visit brandnewbear.ca.
It is important to support local businesses during these challenging times. Help keep our community vibrant by visiting local stores while practicing physical distancing, shopping online, ordering takeout or delivery, or purchasing a gift card for future use.
