Traffic discussed

An open house will take place on Thursday, Dec. 10, to review future plans for the highways near Sylvan Lake. Alberta Transportation has hired Dillon Consulting to determine the future configuration of Hwy 20 south of Hwy 11A and the best location for an interchange at Hwy 20 and Hwy 11. Consultants are also looking at the best way to connect the north end of Secondary Hwy 781 to connect to the interchange. The open house will be the second of three. The last one will take place next spring and a final report will be ready by the fall. The public can see the options so far at Sylvan Lake’s Medican Multiplex at 4803 48th St. from 5 to 9 p.m.
