Road closure at 43 Street due to spring runoff

(Red Deer, Alberta)

This morning a portion of 43 Street between 48 Avenue and 49 Avenue has been closed due to localised flooding from Piper Creeks spring runoff. 

Barricades have been put up and detours are in place for motorists. Residents are asked to obey all posted signs and trail users are asked to use caution in the area. City crews are monitoring creek levels which are expected to return to normal in a few days.

With recent warmer temperatures, The City is reminding all residents that ice conditions at community ponds, creeks, and the Red Deer River can be very hazardous and citizens should exercise extreme caution as it is not safe for people or pets to enter the water at this time. Do note, though, that water levels so far this year are below flood levels.
