Bridge repairs reduce lanes on Highway 27 near Morrin

    Motorists can expect minor delays and lane reductions on Highway 27 near Morrin.
    The highway will be reduced to single lane traffic on and around the bridge carrying the highway over the Red Deer River.
    The lane reduction takes place from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, starting Oct. 25 and continuing through Oct. 28, weather permitting.
    Traffic will be controlled through signage and temporary traffic lights. The travel lane width will be reduced to 3.6 metres and vehicles exceeding this width will have to use alternate routes.
    The lane reduction accommodates repairs to the bridge required due to a high-load collision earlier this year.
    Motorists should use caution in this area and obey all signs, message boards, and flag people. Fines for speeding are doubled in construction zones when workers are present.
