Gasoline Alley intersection closed

Summer construction will force the closure of a Gasoline Alley intersection.

Summer construction will force the closure of a Gasoline Alley intersection.

Red Deer County is advising residents that the intersection at Leva Avenue and Lantern Street will be closed starting Wednesday.

A roundabout is bring built at the intersection over the summer and the construction is tentatively scheduled to be completed by September.

Signs and barricades will be in place and a detour will be in effect. Public transit will continue to operate and all businesses will remain open.

Both the 12 and 12A transit routes will be affected. The 12 route will bypass the area by turning left onto Lake Street, right at Laura Avenue, right on Lantern Street, left on Liberty Avenue, then left at Waskasoo Avenue and then right back onto Lantern Street. Meanwhile, 12A will continue on a similar path, but instead it will turn left at the intersection of Lantern Street and Waskasoo, right at Laura Avenue and continue on its regular route.

There will be temporary bus stops along both routes during the construction.

More information will be released as the project progresses. For more information on the project, plans and closures, visit
