Motorists advised to avoid downtown area near Scenic Drive or expect delays

Lethbridge Regional Police are advising the public to avoid travel in the downtown area, particularly the intersections with Scenic Drive, in light of a convoy of farm vehicles and equipment that will be leaving the Lethbridge Lodge.

The rally, which drew a crowd of approximately 800 people, is expected to end by 4 p.m. and many farm vehicles and equipment will be making their way out of the city at that time.

Police will be directing traffic at the intersection of 3 Avenue and Scenic Drive South and 4 Avenue and Scenic Drive South to assist in keeping the flow of traffic moving in a safe and orderly fashion.

The closure of the outside lanes of southbound Scenic Drive S. between 3 Avenue and 5 Avenue and northbound Scenic Drive between 3 Avenue and 4 Avenue will remain in place until the area has been cleared.

Police remind everyone to drive safely.
