Part of Hverfisgata to be Closed for Construction Over Summer

Hverfisgata between Ingólfsstræti and Smiðjustígur will be closed later this month and will remain so until September 2019. Per an announcement on the City of Reykjavík website, this section of the downtown street will be closed while sewage and cold-water pipes are repaired, just as was recently done at the western end of the street. Íngólfsstræti between Hverfisgata and Laugavegur will also be under construction at the same time.

In addition to working on the pipelines, the city will also be installing an underground snow-melting system at the intersections and under the bike path and sidewalk, putting in street lamps, adding in a stone shoulder along the roadway, and planting vegetation.

The City of Reykjavík began taking bids for this construction work this week; it is expected to start shortly.
