Resurfacing 48th Ave expected to cause delays

Resurfacing of a 12-block stretch of 48th Avenue in Red Deer will delay traffic and eliminate numerous parking spots for about a week this month. Starting on Tuesday, crews will remove the existing asphalt surface. Then by Aug. 8 or 9, a layer of oil will be applied to the road surface. Motorists will be able to use 48th Avenue during this work, however traffic delays are expected and flaggers will direct traffic around equipment. Parking along 48th Avenue will not be allowed during construction.
