Slow down and move over for highway crews: Mainroad

Replacing culverts, shoulder repairs, paving and mowing operations are some of Mainroad East Kootenay Contracting’s highway maintenance activities in the East Kootenay.

This means drivers can expect to see crews working on the side of the road this summer.

Roadside work is a dangerous job.  A reminder to please slow down and move over when approaching roadside workers and vehicles stopped on the road.

“Remaining safe is a joint responsibility. When you see our crews, please slow down and drive with extreme care.  Stay alert, minimize distractions, and show respect for crews at work for you,” stated Andries de Witt, Mainroad General Manager.

Mainroad aims to perform most East Kootenay Service Area maintenance during off-peak traffic periods.
