They've been at it for a while now, but it looks like crews will finish construction of a turnout at the bottom of Drumheller's South Hill sooner rather than later.
"They'll be finished by Friday," stated Darryl Drohomerski, the town's Director of Infrastructure Services. "They're just pouring a concrete median and doing some line painting."
"All the barricades will be removed by Friday and then it'll be completely open for the public from that point on."
The turnoff came at the request of the town, which argued that people stopping to take a photo with the Welcome to Drumheller sign were in danger of being hit by passing traffic.
Construction began on July 31 and involved on and off ramps as well as a parking area with angled spaces and a paved path to the welcome sign.
The project was originally intended to be completed on Friday, August 11, but there were some unexpected delays.
