It's been a long time coming but visitors to the valley will finally have a safe spot to snap a photo with the 'Welcome to Drumheller' sign.
Construction of the turnout at the bottom of the south hill is expected to wrap up on Wednesday, August 16.
"It will provide a little bit of parking, we don't want to encourage a lot people to stop there because that will cause another problem," explained Mayor Terry Yemen. "There are people going to stop there, that's just the nature of it and we want to give them a safe area to pull off in."
Alberta Transportation crews have nearly finished paving the turnout.
"That project comes from the Town of Drumheller council and from a councillor, myself and the CAO driving to Edmonton and making a face to face request," noted Yemen.
"We asked them 'what is the value of a life' and then they decided that this is a project they should look at," he continued. "That comes at the courtesy of the Town of Drumheller."
The project was originally intended to be completed on Friday, August 11, but there were some unexpected delays.
