Residents are being asked to be careful around the Bleriot Ferry. The cable assembly counterweight could be dangerous and Alberta Transportation is asking that residents not park underneath the assembly nor launch water craft at the ferry.
Parking under the assembly could result in damage to vehicles or their occupants. Plus, it could interfere with the safe operation of the ferry. To be safe, motorists should not park under any cables at the ferry.
In regards to launching water craft from the ferry, the same dangers are present. It could interfere with or damage the ferry and the craft and it’s occupants could be harmed as well.
Alberta Transportation has erected signage at the ferry discouraging parking under the assembly and from launching.
“Alberta Transportation has installed additional signage to remind people to curb these practices,” said Trent Bancarz, Public Affairs Officer with Alberta Transportation. “We may consider other actions, if required.”
