A Blackfalds fabrication business is warning of local traffic disruptions as it ships product north during the next several weeks.
Cord WorleyParsons, the construction division of WorleyParsons Canada Ltd., plans to transport oversized loads from its facilities in the Blackfalds Industrial Park to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Northern Alberta.
A total of 17 loads are scheduled to be moved on July 17, 20, 23, 24 and 30 and Aug. 4 and 7, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. About 55 additional loads are expected to follow later in the year.
The route affected will be Secondary Hwy 597 east from Blackfalds, Secondary Hwy 815 south, Hwy 11 east, Secondary Hwy 601 northeast and Hwy 21 north.
WorleyParsons Canada announced in November that it had been awarded a contract by Devon Energy to perform construction work for Devon Energy’s Jackfish 2 oilsands project. The work, estimated to be worth $48 million, was to be done at Cord WorleyParsons’ modularization and fabrication facility at Blackfalds.
