Lethbridge County needs feedback on future roadwork


Lethbridge County Council is seeking feedback from the public on speed limits on our road network.

First reading of a proposed Speed Limit bylaw was approved by Council on October 20, which addresses speeds on roads throughout the County, including hamlets, acreage subdivisio­ns, industrial parks, and rural areas. Currently, the County has a Traffic Control Bylaw, but administra­tion has identified that more consistenc­y is needed for speed limit designatio­n, resulting in the creation of the proposed Speed Limit Bylaw.

Prior to proceeding with further readings and passing the bylaw, Council wants to hear from citizens, businesses, and those who regularly use the roads to aid in their decision-making.

A short survey is available until November 30 for those wishing to comment. It is available in several formats:

• online at whatshappe­­eed-limit-bylaw

• filling out a paper copy at the Lethbridge administra­tion office (#100, 905 4 Avenue South)

• calling 403-328-5525

Questions include asking respondent­s their preferred speed in hamlets and industrial parks, as well as overall satisfacti­on with speed limits and signage in the County. There is also the opportunit­y to comment on specific roads of concern. Survey results will be presented to Council at the December 15 Council meeting.
