Hwy. 40 development to go ahead

GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. — Despite the complaints of local residents, the City of Grande Prairie will go ahead with a plan to develop an industrial area along Hwy. 40.

Although residents in the area 2.5 kilometres south of the city are concerned about increased noise, traffic and pollution, councilors decided that a berm can be built to separate the industrial land from neighboring residential areas.

This means more trucks will be making the journey up Hwy. 40, in northern Alberta to service the new industrial area, much to the chagrin of local residents.
