Access controlled to enhance safety

GRANDE PRAIRIE — Alberta Infrastructure is improving safety on a well-travelled stretch of Hwy. 40, by reducing the number of access point and constructing service roads.

The eight-kilometre stretch of highway, running from Grande Prairie to the Wapiti River crossing, is expected to wrap up this week.

The improvements, resulting from last year’s access management study, did away with dangerous intersections and resulted in over five kilometres of gravel service roads being built.

Alberta Infrastructure is also taking the opportunity to try a new “superpave mix,” made of larger aggregate, which should improve the roads durability.
