May 25, 2015 1:30 PM

A portion of 30 Avenue (Range Road 272), north of 67 Street closed this morning as construction gets underway for the 67 Street / 30 Avenue Expansion Project.

The closure is necessary for underground utility installation and road construction which will see this section of roadway paved. The road closure will remain in place until the end of the summer.

A detour route is in place along Township Road 384 and Range Road 271.

The 67 Street and 30 Avenue Expansion Project began in 2014 and is needed to facilitate growth and development in Red Deer’s northeast. This year’s work includes extending 30 Avenue two kilometres north, extending 67 Street one kilometre east and constructing a modern two lane- roundabout northeast of the current bend. Construction on the roundabout will begin late summer.
