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.
