Lamoureux Road is open to traffic once again after Sturgeon County addressed drainage and erosion issues.
County engineers have been dealing with the problem for quite some time.
"As of last year, we noticed the erosion had got to a point where it was threatening road infrastructure and a potential threat to public safety," explained Sturgeon County capital projects officer Stephen Hinton. "At that point, the project for realignment was expedited."
Closed in the spring and for most of the summer, crews worked to rebuild the road a bit further up, away from the eroding riverbank.
"Through our contractor, they've been dealing a lot with truckers and people hauling grain through there and they've been very happy to see it re-opened and it's a major route for a lot of people to connect through to Highway 15, as well as Lamoureux and Fort Augustus."
The county will be working on drainage issues on the road in 2019 to 2020.
The project is expected to come in under the $409,525 budget.
