New Rutland Road North alignment opens

Beginning Tuesday, September 5, Rutland Road N at Old Vernon Road (Reids Corner) will be closed and the new realignment of Rutland Road to Acland Road will be open.

This project has been completed as part of the Ministry of Transportation Project Six-Laning of Highway 97.

Since the 1990s, the transportation plan has identified the realignment of Rutland Road to connect with Acland Road to the northeast was needed to increase safety and help to relieve traffic congestion at the corner of the intersection at Highway 97, Old Vernon Road, and Sexmith Road.
