Hwy 2A through region must be upgraded

How long are residents going to have to deal with the dangerous fiasco of the Hwy 2A corridor between Penhold and Lacombe?

How long are residents going to have to deal with the dangerous fiasco of the Hwy 2A corridor between Penhold and Lacombe?

I have seen numerous close calls and accidents on this section of highway.

It’s unbelievable that a busy rail line still exists south of the Blindman River and it is a major traffic snarl. Traffic gets backed up for miles!

I have heard stories of semi drivers waiting 40 minutes to make a safe left turn onto Hwy 2A from around the Precision Drilling area. It’s so congested.

Alberta Transportation continues to drop the ball year after year.

This problem should have been fixed years ago.
