Visitors to the Drumheller Valley have noticed a slight delay in traffic on the south hill, but that should clear up this week.
Traffic has been narrowed down to one lane so Alberta Transportation crews can install a turnout for inbound traffic at the bottom of the hill.
"They are going to excavate down to almost half a meter and that is basically doing the whole footprint of the access road going in and the exit road going out," said Steve Huculak, inspector with AECOM.
The turnout is being designed for those travelling to our community can stop and take photos with the 'Welcome to Drumheller' sign.
"There are all the parking stalls and then we will have arrows guiding them in and out," explained Huculak. "Most certainly it will probably get congested, but at the end of the day it is much better than what we have in the present."
"We will put on the asphalt, which is substantial just because on the off season if a big truck happened to turn in it will sustain the weight," he concluded.
Construction was expected to be completed on August 11, but some delays caused a longer construction period.
