Highway rehabilitation work started last year on Hwy 2 from about Innisfail to Red Deer, as well as the interchanges at Hwys 27 and 42, is expected to wrap up by the end of May.
Drivers going both north and south on Hwy 2 will experience intermittent lane closures and speed reductions from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday to Friday, as well at 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday and 9 p.m. to 10 a.m. on Sunday.
However, on long weekends no work will occur from 7 a.m. Friday to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Only one of the four lanes will be closed at a time and speed limits will be reduced to 80 km/h when construction crews are working.
The rehabilitation of Hwy 2 for that stretch is expected to start on May 7 and go until May 31, weather permitting.
As well, the Hwy 2 interchanges at Hwy 27 near Olds and Hwy 42 near Penhold will experience some lane closures in May.
Drivers can expect intermittent lane closures and speed reduction from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. Only one of the four lanes will be closed at a time.
Speed limits will be reduced to 50 km/h when construction crews are working. The interchange construction is expected to start May 6 and run until May 31, weather permitting.
Both of these projects were part of a 2013 contract that cost $13 million.
