After the holiday Monday, traffic on Highway 9 North might be a little slow.
The Town of Drumheller advises that there will be a traffic reduction on Highway 9 starting Wednesday, July 3.
Construction on Highway 9 will see the road medians rebuilt and the road resurfaced.
"There's a series of things we need to do," explained Julia Fielding, the town's Communications Officer. "We need to do some changes to the medians and all the concrete work. So, the gutters and things along the side of the road."
Although the road's maintenance is the responsibility of Alberta Transportation, Fielding says that the town is working closely with them as a part of Drumheller's Street Improvement Program.
"To start, they have various different tasks that they (the contractors) are going to be doing," she continued. "They are going to be resurfacing, but the first task is improving the medians, working on the medians and the edges of the street as well."
Fielding also noted that work is also planned on 2 Ave West, Hunts Crescent and Highway 9 South sometime after this project is done and that Highway 9 North will be under construction until August 24.
The Town of Drumheller asks residents to be vigilant in this area when operating vehicles along this road as workers may be present.
