Erosion protection starting along river bank in Riverview Park

(Red Deer, Alberta)

Erosion protection work along the south bank of the Red Deer River between Heritage Ranch and Riverview Park is underway.

This project involves placing rip-rap (large rock) along the eroded bank to increase stability and to protect against further erosion. The rip-rap is currently stock-piled in a parking lot in Great Chief Park and this week crews will be constructing a river crossing from Little Chief Park to access the south bank of the Red Deer River where the erosion protection work is required.

The Erosion Protection Project will continue until mid-May 2016. During this time, the west parking lot at Great Chief Park and the parking lot near the boat launch in Little Chief Park will be closed. Parking is still available in Great Chief Park. Flag people will be on Fountain Drive directing single-lane alternating traffic as Fountain Drive and people accessing amenities off Fountain Drive are asked to allow for an extra couple of minutes as there will be short delays.
