(Red Deer, Alberta)

Pedestrians in Waskasoo are advised of construction activity that is occurring near the pathway through Gaetz Park as crews work to realign Waskasoo Creek.

The realignment of the creek near the walking bridge will straighten the flow of the creek and prevent erosion of the embankment. As part of accessing the site, rig mats are being placed on portions of the trail near Gaetz Ave bridge as well as just west of Waskasoo crescent.

There are no trail closures in effect; however, there may be short delays for pedestrians when equipment is on the trail.

Construction begun in the area and will continue until approximately September 15, 2020. There will be some activity following construction for surface restoration.

Signage is in place to alert pedestrians of construction activity in the area.
