If you plan on travelling down Main Street today or tomorrow, be aware of lane closures that could affect your plans.

Two southbound lanes will be closed to accommodate construction activities for the new library and multi-use facility.

The lanes will be closed just north of the entrance to the facility to Ridgegate Way.

Because of this closure, the left northbound lane will turn into a southbound lane, for traffic.

According to the city, concrete is still being poured for the facility with steel framing next on the to-do list, which will begin in the spring.

The new facility will be 73,000 square feet with 53,000 allocated for the library and 20,000 for the multi-use space, costing roughly $65 million. 

The facility will have an underground parkade with approximately 100 stalls as well as ground-level parking which is currently being constructed.

According to The City, Airdrie currently has one of the highest-used libraries per capita with approximately 90,000 visits annually.

The opening of the new Library and Multi-Use Facility is currently set for 2025.
