Hwy. 2/Gaetz Avenue interchange – Taylor Dr. night closures

Closures will be in effect each night, weather permitting and will re-open each the morning

Flatiron Construction Corp. is anticipating closing Taylor Drive to traffic from 19 St. to south of the Hwy. 2/2A turn-off on the evenings of July 14th – July 17th,

The closures will be in effect each night, weather permitting, and will re-open to traffic each the morning.

The closures are required in order to protect motorists while construction crews place bridge girders onto the Hwy. 2 bridges that will go over Taylor Drive.

Detours will be in place during the night closures and will be removed each day when Taylor Dr. re- opens to traffic.

Motorists wanting to head south on Taylor Dr. will be re-routed to the Hwy. 2/32 St. interchange then back to the Hwy. 2A turn-off.

Motorists wanting to travel north on Taylor Dr. from Hwy. 2A will be detoured to the Highway 2/McKenzie Rd. interchange then back north on Hwy. 2 to access Taylor Drive from 19 St.

Detailed information and sketches showing the detour routes can be found on the project web site at Hwy2Gaetz.com.

Speed limits on Hwy. 2 will be reduced to 50 km/hr in the evenings, with intermittent traffic stopages on Hwy. 2 of up to five minutes while the girders are removed from the delivery trucks. As there will be traffic delays, motorists are asked to plan ahead and drive safely through the construction zone.

Flatiron Construction Corp., on behalf of Alberta Transportation, would like to thank local residents and road users for their patience during these night closures.
