Completed projects

40th Avenue and Ross Street Intersection Improvements
Upgrades for the intersection of Ross Street & 40th Avenue

The City of Red Deer’s Engineering department has determined that upgrades are required for the intersection of Ross Street & 40 Avenue, as the intersection has capacity challenges at certain times of day, limited ability to handle additional growth with its current configuration, and the signal infrastructure has surpassed its replacement date. The intersection geometry will be upgraded so both Eastbound and Westbound traffic directions (along Ross Street) have a dedicated left-hand turning lane, a through traffic lane, and a through traffic / right-hand turning lane. 

Upgrades to the traffic signal infrastructure and street lighting were completed in the fall of 2020. This spring, crews completed underground work and road widening to accommodate left turning lanes along Ross Street.

The final major road closure will take place on Sunday, June 27 as crews complete paving. Detours will be in place for drivers.

This work is weather dependent and we will update the schedule as information becomes available.
