Sierra Boulevard SW – Road Maintenance
Spring Road Failure
Medicine Hat – Sierra Boulevard SW westbound, between Southridge Drive SE and Sunrise Gate SW, has experienced a structural road failure, due to spring thawing events.
In order to reduce further failure and maintain a safe driving lane, Municipal Works will be placing a temporary driving surface (rig matting) at this location. It is anticipated that this work will be concluded by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3.
This section of roadway will be reduced to one lane and posted at 20 km/h while the temporary driving surface is in place.
The temporary driving surface will be in place until permanent repair methods are available this spring.
