All-day school zones are coming to Strathcona County.
 
Beginning in September, all urban and rural school zones will be in effect from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on school days.
 
“We appreciate the support and collaboration of our partners in safety such as the Strathcona County School Traffic Safety Partnership. Moving to all-day school zones supports their recommendations,” said mayor Rod Frank. “It supports our Vision Zero philosophy, where no one is seriously injured or killed while travelling on Strathcona County’s road network.”
 
Current school zone times on school days are 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. These times were deemed ineffective by council due to changing schedules and early dismissal days.
 
The speed limit will stay 30 km/h.
 
The county will also be ensuring the new effective times are displayed on every school zone sign.
 
School zone speeds are in effect from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. in Fort Saskatchewan.
