Construction season has hit full stride for the City of Red Deer.

40th Avenue intermittent closures

Motorists are advised of upcoming traffic disruptions as crews work to replace catch basins, repair concrete curbs and medians, and rehabilitate pavement along 40 Avenue.

Starting on July 8, work will begin along the northbound lanes of 40 Avenue from McBride Crescent to 39 Street. For approximately three weeks, one lane in both the southbound and northbound directions will be closed intermittently as this work progresses.

Once completed, pavement rehabilitation will begin. During this work, 40 Avenue will be fully closed from McBride Crescent to 39 Street, including the McBride Crescent / 40 Avenue Northbound intersection. Traffic will be detoured to the southbound lanes. This work is tentatively scheduled to take one week.

Riverview Avenue/63 Street and Hermary Street

Also, drivers are advised of a road closure at the intersection of Riverview Avenue/63 Street and Hermary Street as crews work on utility services in the area.

The closure will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, July 8 and is expected to be in place until approximately 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 11. As with all construction, the schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to obey all signs, exercise caution in the area and plan an alternate route.
