Lane Closure-Scenic Dr South

​Southbound Scenic Drive South will be reduced to one lane between Park Royal and Scenic Heights on Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for landscaping and grass seeding along the west boulevard.

Motorists are advised drive with caution in this area.

City of Lethbridge Parks staff, in partnership with the Prairie Turfgrass Research Centre at Olds College, are planting mixed grass species along this 350-metre section of this boulevard as part of a three-year study. The study will test the establishment and survival of 10 different seed mixes as well as the effects of various soil compositions on the establishment and survival of these grasses. The study is being seeded this spring, and data will be collected during the growing season this year as well as in 2017 and 2018.
