McKinley Road work completed

Work has been completed on safety improvements to McKinley Road.

The work started Oct. 3 and resulted in an increase to the curve radius on the road from 40 metres to 60 metres, a straightening of part of the road, as well as adding a larger curve at the start of the section along side the adjacent reservoir.

The road also had the the travel lanes widened to 3.5 metres with a one-metre shoulder and precast concrete barriers were installed adjacent to the reservoir. The $458,000 project was completed by OK Excavating and was came in on time and on budget, says the city.

The work was prompted by a serious accident on the road late last year that resulted in a young woman being killed when her car went off the road and into the reservoir.

Prior to that accident there had been numerous other accidents and close calls on the winding stretch of McKinley Road.
