Reconstruction of Range Road 272 from Township Road 540 to Highway 633 will result in a higher standard gravel roadway.
Range Road 272 between Highway 633 and Township Road 540 is 3.2 km in length and has an approximate right-of-way of 20 metres.
The roadway was constructed prior to the current standards for roadway designs.
The County has undertaken the roadway design to improve the crests, sightlines, and ditches within the work area.
The project includes:
- Granular case course
- Drainage improvements
What to expect
Sturgeon County will be sending construction notification letters to affected residents prior to commencement of this work. A contact number will be provided in case there are concerns.
- Traffic disruption through work zones will be encountered. One lane of traffic will be maintained, as well as access to residences during the project.
- A tentative construction schedule will be included with the notification letter.
The intersection of Highway 633 and Range Road 272 will be improved to include acceleration and deceleration lanes.
