Red Deer drivers to be impacted by upcoming road closures

Closures to take place this weekend, plus a new road project on the way

Upcoming temporary road and lane closures will impact traffic over the next few weeks due to construction.

The 67th St./Johnstone Drive roundabout is nearing completion, and temporary lane and road closures are required to complete paving on surrounding roadways. These include Johnstone Drive will close from 67th St. to Edgar Industrial Drive on Aug. 12th. Orr Drive will also close from 66th St. to 67th St. on Aug. 13th.

Detour maps for the Johnstone Drive and Orr Drive closures are available online at redder.ca/construction. The schedule is dependent on weather conditions. In case of inclement weather, road closures will be rescheduled to the following weekend.

A new construction project at the 19th St. and Taylor Drive intersection is scheduled to start Aug. 14th and will include concrete work, new traffic lights, road widening and additional turn lanes. The upgrades to this intersection are in preparation for the Southpointe Junction development and as part of the future configuration for the Gaetz Avenue/Queen Elizabeth 2 Hwy. interchange. Temporary lane closures will be required but traffic flow will be maintained in all directions.
