Alberta Transportation will be repairing Highway 585 at west Red Deer River Hill to improve safety. The highway has slid, knocking over the guardrail and creating a very rough driving surface. The work will consist of removing some of the existing pavement to alleviate some of the roughness. As well, guardrail will be relocated onto the asphalt shoulder of the highway to protect vehicles from the steep embankment.
