Strathcona County, Alta. - As the weather warms up residents can expect construction season to start once again this year. The Strathcona County RCMP wants to remind motorists that when you are driving through a construction zone, always obey the posted speed limit, even if you do not see any workers.
Safety is always the highest priority for road construction projects. Speed reductions in construction zones protect both workers and the travelling public.
For the safety of road workers: speed fines are doubled when workers are present.
