Highway 49 Detour For Most Of The Summer

Highway 49 Detour For Most Of The Summer
Posted on 06/05/2017

Highway 49 will be blocked off, just west of the County Complex, and traffic will be directed onto a two-lane gravel surface detour throughout June, July and part of August in order for Alberta Transportation to replace a culvert.

Speed reduction will be enforced from 100km/hr to 50km/hr with speed fine double signs in the work zone.

Alberta Transportation warns motorists to be aware of narrowed shoulder widths as the detour has a 9m road top.  Flagpersons may be utilized when equipment is on the highway or to control the movement of traffic.
