It's construction season in the Drumheller Valley and people are having to find new ways to get around town.
A repaving of Highway 9 between McDonald's and the Husky station is scheduled for completion on Friday, July 7, but it's not the only road getting attention.
"The contractor's got work all over town that they're doing, some smaller pieces, some bigger excavations," noted Darryl Drohomerski, the town's Director of Infrastructure Services. "They're going to be doing some more paving on some of the side streets, smaller municipal project streets, well into next week."
"There's one major reconstruction road and that is 2 Street, SE and Hunts Crescent, they kind of join each other," he continued. "That's been ongoing for a few weeks: they've replaced the sidewalks on both sides and they're going to start digging the road out any day now."
The list of streets to get work isn't any longer than usual, but Drohomerski said it will tie up traffic from time to time.
"A bit of construction over the next few weeks, but it will all be on more the side streets," he explained. "We have a few bigger paving projects, but again, nothing that's going to impact the majority of people like the South Railway Project has done."
