Effective immediately, the speed limit on Whoop-up Drive has been reduced to 60km/h until further notice. This speed limit reduction is being implemented in anticipation of deteriorating road conditions over the next 24 to 48 hours.
Motorists are reminded to adjust their driving for winter road conditions. Slow down, use caution when approaching and crossing bridge decks and intersections, and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you.
Residents are reminded the City of Lethbridge does supply sand for icy sidewalks. Public sand can be found near the corner of 4th Avenue North and 7th Street North - please bring your own bucket. Snowfighters will continue to work around the clock to help "keep you on the move".
More information on the City's Snow and Ice Control program is available online at: www.lethbridge.ca/winterroads.
