Next week, portions of the 67 Street and 30 Avenue bend in northeast Red Deer will be down to one lane each direction as part of the 67 Street / 30 Avenue Expansion Project.

Starting Tuesday, April 26, Carleton Avenue at 67 Street will close so crews can connect the new east extension of 67 Street with Carleton Avenue. This closure is expected to last until late June / early July. During this time, access to Clearview Market will be from Carrington Drive at 30 Avenue for both vehicles and pedestrians. All businesses in Clearview Market will be open as usual during road construction.

In July, Carleton Avenue at 67 Street will re-open and Carrington Drive at 30 Avenue will close.
Access into Clearview Market will switch from Carrington Drive to Carleton Avenue for the remainder of the construction season.

Additional work is also happening on 30 Avenue from Crossley Avenue to Highway 11 (55 Street) for the month of May, starting on Monday, May 2. Lane closures will also be in effect through this stretch.

“We know there will be delays, so give yourself extra time while driving in this area during construction season,” said Wayne Gustafson, Engineering Services Manager. “We thank motorists, businesses and residents in advance for their patience as we work to improve the safety and performance of our road network.”

The 67 Street / 30 Avenue Expansion Project involves the extension of 30 Avenue north, 67 Street east, and the construction of a modern two-lane roundabout where they intersect, northeast of Clearview Market. The modern roundabout will accommodate future growth in northeast Red Deer, improve traffic flow, decrease congestion and improve traffic safety for all road users.
