Repaving is underway along Highway 33 and Big White Road

Expect delays travelling along Highway 33 as crews get to work paving the road.

A 39.5 km section of the highway from Carmi Station off Highway 33 up to Big White Road is being repaved, as well as a four-kilometre stretch of Big White Road.

Work started on the Big White Road on Wednesday, Aug. 12 and work on the entire project is expected to last until Sep. 18.

During the paving, traffic will be reduced to occasional one-way alternating lanes. Drivers can expect minor delays during paving.
