The City of Grande Prairie has completed the paving of 108 Street near 89 Avenue and traffic is now able to flow northbound and southbound.

Crews successfully installed a box culvert under a portion of 108 Street to improve drainage and correct underground water flow in the area.

Some work remains, over the next two weeks crews are completing line painting, pavement markings, connection of the box culvert to the existing storm drainage system, and the reinstallation of a traffic pole and lights.

While construction continues, the north and south traffic signals at the intersection of 108 Street and 89 Avenue are placed in a yellow-flashing mode, drivers are advised to approach with caution and follow all posted signage or flag persons.

Access to 89 Avenue remains closed until the traffic pole and lights are installed, drivers must find alternate routes.
