Ice buildup on creeks forces closure of a city road

Portion of 43rd Street shut down starting Friday

Starting Friday 43rd Street will be closed from Spruce Drive to 48th Avenue for construction until further notice.

The City of Red Deer said due to significant ice build-up in Waskasoo and Piper Creeks, work is required to clear the ice and open up the culverts to prevent flooding.

Access to Rotary Park will remain open, but 43rd Street will close to through traffic. Drivers can use 32rd Street or 45th Street as alternate routes.

The sidewalk on the south side of 43rd Street will close to pedestrians and some trails in the area will close. The public is asked to obey the signs and barricades in place.

Updates will be provided on the road closure as the work progresses.
