Maidstone RCMP have instituted strict traffic regulations near Maidstone in order to slow traffic down near the North Saskatchewan River.
RCMP say the river hill on Highway 21 at the North Saskatchewan River (Toby Nollet Bridge) has been reduced to 60 KM/HR as there has been a temporary site of operations for the river clean up.
This site is set up on the east side Highway 21 at the North Saskatchewan River and has a significant amount of vehicle traffic coming on and off the highway.
This has been identified as a road hazard and the speed zone has been changed accordingly by the Department of Highways.
The Maidstone RCMP is undertaking traffic safety initiatives in the area including checkstops and speed enforcement to facilitate the change in the speed from 100 KM/HR to 60 KM/HR.
At this time, there is no end date for the speed zone change.
