Highways 643 and 825 will be getting some much needed traffic lights.
The lights are being installed at a cost of $400,000 with help from the Industrial Heartland Trust Fund.
"Sturgeon County council has really had a strong voice and has advocated for continuous improvement in this area," explained senior communications officer, Sheila Moore. "It's good news and we're hearing lots of positive comments from residents in the area so it's very positive."
The Northwest Redwater has been helping to alleviate some of the congestion on Heartland roads by busing their workers in and staggering schedules. The county also has a special agreement with law enforcement to conduct more stringent patrols in the area.
"It improves road safety for motorists, reduced collisions and assists with congestion in the area," said Moore. "Really the biggest thing is safety for the area residents."
The project is set to begin August 1 and last until the end of September, weather pending.
