Effective Friday, October 30, Township Road 711 between Range Road 71 and Range Road 72, also known as Spring Creek Road, will be temporarily closed until further notice to replace a bridge culvert and road repair.

Local traffic is advised to detour using Township Road 712, Range Road 73, Township Road 710, and Range Road 71. Detour routes for heavy truck traffic over 1 Tonne are Range Road 72A and Highway 43. Alternative routes are also identified in the attached map.

County Council has invested $5 million into the Spring Creek Road rehabilitation project. A slumping slope during summer 2019 prompted a temporary closure to allow for road and bridge repair work, caused by repeated wet spring seasons.

The project also involves repaving the road, which will be completed during the 2021 construction season.

To view the road construction projects for the season, view the interactive map at www.countygp.ab.ca/roadconstruction.
