Highway 3 traffic controls in place for construction project

​Starting Saturday March 23, traffic controls will be in place on Highway 3 westbound from Mayor Magrath Drive to 13 Street. 

These controls are in place as a safety measure during a construction project happening adjacent to the highway and are expected to be in place until the end of August.

The westbound to northbound ramp to 13 Street will be closed during the entire duration of construction.  The Mayor Magrath Drive and Stafford Drive ramps should be used as alternate routes during this closure. All Highway 3 lanes will remain open but motorists can expect speed reductions and narrowed lanes widths in this area. There may also be some traffic and parking impacts on 1 Avenue N between 20 Street N and 13 Street N.

This project will be updated through Alberta 511. For ongoing information, residents can call 511 or visit
