On Friday and Saturday crews will be removing approximately 20 trees in the 67 Street and Orr Drive/Johnstone Drive area as part of the 67 Street/Johnstone Drive Intersection Improvement Project.
The trees are being removed in preparation for construction at the 67 Street and Orr Drive/Johnstone Drive intersection, which will begin in spring 2016. New trees will be planted as part of the overall landscaping plan for the area.
On Friday, February 12, there will be intermittent lane closures while the work is underway.
The 67 Street/Johnstone Drive Intersection Improvement Project will see the construction of a modern roundabout at 67 Street and Orr Drive/Johnstone Drive to improve traffic flow and accommodate growth.
Tree removal is also happening on private property along the future 20 Avenue, south of 32 Street. This work is in preparation of the 20 Avenue Trail and Berm Improvement Project which will connect the neighbourhoods of east Red Deer with a trail system from 55 Street to 19 Street.
