Road Closures


There are no road closures at this time.


Range Road 22-5, known locally as Sharples Road, will be seeing an upgrade from Highway 575 to Highway 9. The construction will be beginning early to mid May. The upgrade will consist of a shoulder pull and road sloping on the areas south from Hwy 575 to the top of the south hill. The southern 2 miles from Twp Rd 28-4 to Hwy 9, will be having the curve re-aligned and new road construction south to Twp Rd 28-4. 

The roadway will remain open to local residents only, with some delays. We will limit the road closures as much as possible, however due to culvert replacements in the valleys, we will give notifications to affected residents prior to construction times.

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.
