Making a splash

Travellers on Highway 53 east of Ponoka had to slow down for an unexpected hazard on their afternoon commute Aug. 11.

The south ditch near First Chain Lakes Road was swollen after heavy rain overnight and spilled its banks across the road’s surface.

The ditch eventually drained and the road was clear the next day.
