Bridge rehabilitation is underway on the bridge carrying Highway 2A traffic over the Battle River just south of Ponoka. The contractor, Alberco Construction Ltd., expects project completion by Oct. 31, weather permitting.

To ensure a safe work zone, traffic will be reduced from two lanes to one lane on Highway 2A with a maximum lane width of 4.5 metres. Only one direction of travel will be affected at a time to reduce the impact on travellers.

This project will ensure the long-term structural integrity of the bridge and protect Alberta’s investment in our infrastructure. It includes a new concrete bridge deck and standard maintenance and repairs.

Motorists are asked to drive courteously in the construction zones and obey all posted speed limits, signs and flag people. Fines for speeding are doubled when workers are present.
