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 begins this week, weather permitting, along sections of the following arterial and collector roads:
- University Drive West – southbound from Aperture Dr. W. to stadium entrance
- Macleod Drive West – from McMaster Blvd. W. to University Dr. W.
- Red Crow Boulevard West – from Blackfoot Blvd. W. to Ojibwa Rd. W.
- Grand River Boulevard West – from Riverbrook Close W. to Rivergreen Rd. W.
- 24 Avenue South – from Mayor Magrath Dr. S. to Fairway Plaza Rd. S.
- 13 Street South – from 8 Ave. S. to 9 Ave. S.
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.
