Road construction season about to get underway in Red Deer

  • May. 1, 2020 1:30 p.m.

Warm temperatures are a sign that construction cones will start to pop up around the city.

Through the spring, summer and fall, workers will repair, maintain and do construction on and around roadways, sidewalks and bridge infrastructure, says the city.

Major projects include pavement rehabilitation at the Gaetz Avenue and 32nd Street intersection, intersection improvements at 40th Avenue and Ross Street, infrastructure revitalization in Riverside Meadows and Fairview and bridge rehabilitation at 32nd Street and Piper Creek.

“We want to remind Red Deerians that construction and repairs to our roadways are necessary this time of year,” said public works manager Greg Sikora.

“Sometimes, these projects can cause frustration for residents, but the temporary inconvenience is outweighed by the benefit of having reliable, safe roads in our city.

“We are asking drivers to use caution, follow signs and slow down in construction zones to help keep our crews safe.”
