Construction zone safety

Strathcona County urges motorists to take extra precautions in construction zones.

  • Slow down and obey the signs in construction zones. Hidden hazards can include uneven pavement, loose gravel, sharp shoulders and temporarily removed guardrails, medians or street lighting. Please drive with care.

  • Be alert and watch out for workers and equipment. Construction workers and flag persons wear fluorescent yellow coveralls and orange hard hat safety gear to make them very visible.

  • Please SLOW DOWN in any areas where road repair work is underway. Safety precautions are taken in all construction zones but hazards still exist. 

Note: Reduced speed limits are in effect in construction zones, whether or not there are workers present, as hazards may still exist. Speeding fines are double in construction zones when workers are present.
