(Red Deer, Alberta)

Starting on Friday, trail closures will begin as part of AltaLink’s Red Deer Area Transmission Development project.

AltaLink is upgrading their 755L transmission line that runs parallel to 22 Street from west of Red Deer to east of the city limits. Portions of trails along this right-of-way will close while work is underway. The trail from Gaetz Avenue to Barrett Drive will be the first section closed while crews are working in the area on March 11. Crews will continue working eastwards through Bower and Southbrook, closing sections of the trail as they progress. This portion of work is expected to be complete by March 14, 2016. The trail east of 40 Avenue along 22 Street near Inglewood, Vanier Woods and Vanier Woods East will close intermittently between March 28 and April 15.

Signs will be installed in advance of the trail closures indicating the closure timeline. Trails are only closed while work is underway.
