Stettler County erects 4-way stop sign near Paradise Shores development

Sign erected at Hwy 835 at Township Road 40-2

New traffic control being installed by Alberta Transportation to improve intersection safety and handle Buffalo Lake traffic.

A new 4-Way Stop is being installed by Alberta Transportation this week at the intersection of Highway 835 and Township Road 40-2. Installation work is expected to be completed July 12.

The County of Stettler’s Municipal Planning Commission approved a Development Permit application for Paradise Shores RV Resort at NE 20-40-20 W4M at their June 27 meeting.

As part of preparing an area structure plan the developer provided a Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) prepared by a professional transportation engineer. The TIA found that Hwy 835, Township Road 40-2 and Range Road 20-4 are a suitable route to provide access to the proposed development. Improvements to the intersection of Township Road 40-2 with Hwy 835 are required to establish safe road conditions.

The Notice of Decision states: By no later than Sept. 30, 2019, the intersection of Hwy 835 and Township Road 40-2 shall be improved to a Type II treatment with a Type IV northbound right turn lane in compliance with the recommendations in the Traffic Impact Assessment report prepared by JCB Engineering Ltd. at no cost to the County or Alberta Transportation, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

The landowner will not be required to fulfill this condition if the County, the landowner and Alberta Transportation reach a written agreement on the installation of a four-way stop with appropriate warning and speed signs at the intersection of Hwy 835 and Township Road 40-2. If this written agreement is reached, JCB Engineering shall update the traffic impact assessment and the signage shall be installed no later than Sept. 30, 2019.

Warning signs and speed signs identifying the new 4-way stop at the intersection of Hwy 835 and Township Road 40-2 are being installed and expected to be in effect on July 12.
