Travellers headed west of Drumheller towards the Orkney Viewpoint could have some traffic delays in the near future.
 
Highway 837 was closed on Wednesday, Deccember 13 after some large rocks rolled onto the road from the cliff about two kilometres past the turnoff from Highway 575.
 
Drum FM has been told that Alberta Transportation has decided to do a repair of the cliff face to try to fend off future land or rock slides.
 
It's unclear when the work will start or how long it will take.
