Lacombe rail crossings upgraded
Completion of rail crossing upgrades in Lacombe has been delayed a week while work crews respond to emergency work in Southern Alberta.
The Hwys 2A and 12 crossing has been closed since July 22 so improvements could be made.
The intersection was to be open Friday but that has been delayed until Aug. 15.
At Hwy 12, the crossing will be repaved and a small change made to alignment.
Pedestrian crossings will be added and westbound vehicles will no longer be able to squeeze into a small space between the tracks and Hwy 2A.
Traffic will continue to be redirected south to 46th Avenue or north to Wolf Creek Drive.
The latest improvements are the final stage of a $19.3-million project to upgrade Hwy 2A.
The province picked up $16 million of the cost and the city $3.3 million.
