“The City of Grande Prairie appreciates the patience and understanding of residents during construction, and we recognize the impact it has on your morning commutes and daily routines. We thank you for your understanding as this investment in the road network underscores our commitment to improving transportation infrastructure for the entire community’s benefit,” says Grande Prairie Mayor Jackie Clayton.


Scope of Work

The work consists of several key components, including:

  • Roadway asphalt milling

These measures are strategically designed to improve overall road conditions and fortify the durability of the infrastructure.


What to Expect

During construction, motorists should anticipate one-lane alternating traffic within construction zones. The City urges all commuters to exercise caution and adhere to directional signage. We kindly request your patience and cooperation as we strive to minimize traffic disruptions and expedite project completion.
