Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony For Scenic Drive North

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The official grand opening of Scenic Drive North was celebrated on Friday morning.

 

Several dignitaries including Mayor Chris Spearman, Alberta Transportation Minister Ric McIver, MP Jim Hillyer, MLA's Greg Weadick and Bridget Pastoor, and former Mayors Bob Tarleck and Rajko Dodic were on hand for the ribbon cutting.

 

The $20-million project includes a new pedestrian underpass with mining artwork and a new road to Softball Valley and the Waste Water Treatment Plant.

 

The project didn't cost the City of Lethbridge anything, with $17-million coming from the province and the other $3-million from the federal government.

 

Spearman says "it's a very effective route to get people from north Lethbridge into downtown and to connect to south Lethbridge and west Lethbridge."

 

McIver touched on how the new roadway and pedestrian underpass will make things safer. He says "you've got a fairly high speed road here, in a part of the city that's well used, it's going to cut down commute time and is going to separate pedestrians from vehicular traffic and that's a big positive. Obviously the safety of everybody, but particularly the children of Lethbridge, is something that we all need to take seriously and we're very proud to of played a role in improving that."
