Starting tomorrow, crews will be working to replace part of the highway that was damaged by last year’s floods.
Jasmine Franklin with Alberta Transportation Highway 744 at Pat’s Creek in Peace River will be closed for six days, but will be reopened at night when possible.
“They’re replacing a portion of the culvert that was damaged by the June 2013 flood, so the work will return the area to its pre-flood condition and if all goes as planned it should be reopen on Tuesday morning.”
Concrete panels are being replaced during this round of work, and guardrails, curbs, and signage will be added in late May and early June.
Detours are available for anyone wanting to access Highway 2 and downtown Peace River.
