High River Prepares to Re-open 12 Avenue S.W to Two-way Traffic

12-ave-sw-in-high-river-2HIGH RIVER, AB: Crews from Blackie Site Works Ltd. will begin making preparations to open 12 Avenue S.W. to two-way traffic starting the week of October 24.

The temporary sandbags will remain in place to continue to provide interim protection, however, adjustments will be made to the road to accommodate travel in both directions.

The concrete barriers will be removed to allow more space for vehicles, and once re-opened, the speed limit will be reduced to 30 kilometers per hour. Other traffic calming measures may also be installed as needed.

Crews anticipate that they will be able to re-open the road within one week, weather permitting. Residents are reminded to please reduce speed, follow posted signage and obey flag persons while this work is being completed.
