Construction begins on South Hill turn out
Construction has begun on a new turnout at the base of the South Hill to keep drivers and visitors safe.
The Town lobbied the provincial government for changes at the iconic “Welcome to Drumheller” sign at the base of the South Hill. This has become an attraction and one of the most photographed places in the valley.
Director of Infrastructure Services Darryl Drohomerski says the crew began work on the site on Tuesday.
“We signed off on the traffic accommodation plan,” said Drohomerski.
“There is going to be one lane of traffic going down the hill just north of the runaway lane. It will be well signed and the work will be going on during the day.”
Crews are onsite at the base of the South Hill creating a safe turnout at the Welcome to Drumheller sign.
