Red Deer drivers will have to watch out for a couple of main road closures in the next couple of days.

Starting Saturday, construction crews will have the southbound lane from the 40th Avenue-32nd Street intersection shut down to Spencer Street.

The intersection work is expected to be done in a week’s time or by Sept. 30.

While the southbound lane is closed, people will be able to use a proposed detour route through Sunnybrook.

City of Red Deer communications consultant Michael Cox said the city has been giving advance notice to nearby neighbours about the extensive work being done in phases along 32nd Street.

On Sunday, 43rd Street will be closed between 52nd Avenue and Taylor Drive.

The one-day closure will take place between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The road closure is required for paving on 43rd Street and detour signs will be in place for entering and exiting Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre.
