The early morning or late evening drive between Drumheller and Nacmine is now a lot safer.
Crews have been working alongside South Dinosaur Trail between the communities for the last few weeks to install the lights.
"The province is installing 20 LED street lights from approximately Hunter Drive to 17 St. (West)," confirmed Bob McManus of Alberta Transportation in Edmonton.
"It was initially requested by the town," explained McManus. "We took a look at it and agreed that it would improve safety alright, and decided to proceed with the project."
The stretch of road in question is totally unlit and subject to river fog in the winter. It is also a popular crossing for deer and other wildlife that head to the river for water.
"It's part of a bundle of 31 different projects throughout the Central Region that cumulatively come in at around $940,000, but we don't have an exact amount for that one project."
