Rehab work on Blindman River bridge
Travellers may experience minor delays from dawn to dusk over the next month on Hwy 20 north of Rimbey as rehabilitation work resumes on the Blindman River bridge.
Work to enhance safety and extend the life of the bridge, located six km north of Rimbey, began in 2012 and was suspended when winter hit.
The $1.18-million project was undertaken as part of regular maintenance.
Traffic lights will be installed at both ends of the bridge to direct motorists as some of the work will require short-term lane closures.
Lane width restrictions of 4.5 metres will be enforced during lane closures.
Most work is expected to take place Monday to Friday but there may also be occasional weekend construction.
Varying speed limit reductions will be in place through the construction zone, depending on the type and location of the work being done.
Fines for speeding are doubled in construction zones when workers are present.
