(Red Deer, Alberta)

CN Rail will be removing track and ties from railway crossings on two Red Deer streets next week; portions of 46A Avenue and 77 Street will each close for two days. 

CN Rail, in coordination with The City, will be removing the track and ties from the crossing on 46a Avenue in the Riverside Light Industrial Park as well as the crossing on 77th Street between 45 Avenue and 42 Avenue. Each area will require a complete road closure for two days to accommodate removal of rails, ties and ballast, and accompanying road re-construction. 

Track removal on 46A Avenue in Riverside Light Industrial Park is scheduled for September 26 and 27. There will be no through traffic, but businesses will be accessible using 48 Avenue. 

Track removal on 77 Street is scheduled for September 28 and 29. A portion of the road around the railway crossing, between 45 Avenue and 42 Avenue, will be closed. Traffic will be detoured using Gaetz Avenue and 67 Street or Riverside Drive. 

Electronic message boards will be in place to direct traffic during construction.
