New Highway Lighting Improvements Announced

The Town of Drumheller is pleased to announce that Alberta Transportation will be upgrading highway street lighting from 17th Street West to the east entrance of Hunter Drive in Nacmine in addition to improved traffic lighting at the intersection of Highways 56 and 10.

The installation of 28 New light standards between the Canadian Badlands Passion Play Site and east Nacmine will increase the level of safety for drivers. Alberta Transportation has approved the project which addresses concerns that were brought forward by the Town earlier this year.

ATCO electric will be installing the new light standards in the Fall of 2017.

"It's always good news to improve safety and we are pleased that we are able to work with Alberta Transportation and ATCO toward this goal." said Mayor, Terry Yemen.
