Highway 2 & 98 Street Overpass Detour
UPDATED at 12:20pm On January 24
Bridge contractors have informed us the detour has been delayed. It will open at 10:30am on Friday Jan. 25. This is to allow time for them to compete snow clearing and removal along the new route.
Speed will be reduced to 50km/h.

Beginning on Thursday, January 24 construction crews will be setting up a detour on Highway 2 around the 98 Street overpass on the east bank of the river.
The detour will be in place for several months as bridge construction begins working to realign the highway. During the detour speed will be reduced to 50km/h, this speed reduction will also apply to the Peace River bridge. Please obey all signage and speed restrictions while driving through the work zones.
