The Town of Okotoks would like to inform residents of a road closure as part of the Telus PureFibre project.

The closure is set to begin today, weather permitting, and will be closed for a minimum of two days.

The closure will affect the eastbound lane on the south side of Riverside Drive and South Railway Street at the intersection of Veterans Way.

Flaggers will be on site to control pedestrian and vehicle traffic, and the closure will affect the pick-up/drop off area in front of the Library, as well.

The town requests residents and motorists watch for crews, equipment, obey flaggers directions and exercise caution in the area.
