They say there are two seasons in Canada; winter and construction season.

Now that it appears winter may be over, the construction season is getting underway in The City of Red Deer.

The annual spring run-off of Piper Creek behind the Baymont Inn & Suites in downtown Red Deer has led to some localized flooding and City officials closing 43 Street to traffic between 48 Avenue and 49 Avenue. Residents are reminded to obey all signs posted in the area.
