Line repainting on Fort McMurray roads over summer

The RMWB is repainting and refreshing road lanes, directional arrows, and crosswalks throughout the region this summer.

Temporary lane and crosswalk closures will be in place when crews are milling and painting, and the RMWB wants to remind residents to watch out for crews working on the road and give them space while driving.

The RMWB says an effort is being made to complete the work at night to minimize construction impacts, such as temporary, partial road closures to ensure the paint dries properly.

The line painting is expected to continue until August 31, 2023, but may be adjusted due to weather or availability of materials.

Those looking for extra information are encouraged to call the PULSE line at 780-743-7000, or visit
