Crews will be working on Dog Creek Road near the intersection of Roberts Drive on Saturday, May 22 to install a French drain system.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure confirmed equipment and materials are being delivered to the staging site Friday.

A 50-metre portion of Roberts Drive will be closed from Dog Creek Road to Shaw Road during Saturday’s work, but there will be a short detour road.

Drivers can anticipate single-lane alternating traffic on Dog Creek Road and minor delays while the French drain system is being installed.

All of the work should be completed on Saturday.
