2017 Road Milling and Paving

​Road milling and paving is an important part of the annual road maintenance program for the City of Lethbridge to ensure safe streets for motorists. This year's program is scheduled to begin this week, weather permitting, along sections of the following arterial roads: 

  • Mayor Magrath Drive – from 3 Avenue North to 3 Avenue South
  • Scenic Drive South – from 26 Street South & Mayor Magrath Drive South
  • 6 Avenue South – from 5 Street South to Scenic Drive South
  • 13 Street South – from 5A Avenue South to 6A Avenue South
  • 28 Street North –from 5 Avenue North to 6 Avenue North

Paving of these roads will occur after milling has been completed. Motorists, especially motorcyclists, are urged to drive with caution as road surfaces will be uneven following milling. The timing of any lane reductions and road closures has been planned to limit the impact to traffic, but motorists may still experience minor delays in work areas. For the safety of construction workers, motorists are advised to drive with caution in work areas and to obey any posted speed limits and detours.
