Road closure near QEII Hwy. interchange this Saturday and Sunday

Taylor Drive closed to traffic Aug. 12th, from 19th St. to south of the QEII Hwy./Hwy. 2A turn-off

Taylor Drive in Red Deer will be closed to traffic, from 19th St. to south of the QEII Hwy./Hwy. 2A turn-off, on Aug. 12th from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. Sunday morning. This closure is required to accommodate pouring of concrete for the new QEII Hwy. bridge decks over Taylor Drive. This work is weather dependent.

Detours will be in place during the night and will be removed when Taylor Drive re-opens to traffic in the morning. Motorists wanting to head south on Taylor Drive will be re-routed to the QEII Hwy./32nd St. interchange then back to the Hwy. 2A turn-off. Motorists wanting to travel north on Taylor Drive from Hwy. 2A will be detoured to the QEII Hwy./McKenzie Road interchange then back north on QEII Hwy. to access Taylor Drive from 19th St. Detailed information and sketches of the detour routes can be found on the project website at Hwy2Gaetz.com.

Flatiron Constructors Canada Ltd., on behalf of Alberta Transportation, would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience during this night closure.
