Town announces installation of digital speed boards

 The Town of Vegreville is excited to announce the installation of digital speed boards that have been purchased through a grant from the Province.

The Town applied for a grant under the Alberta Traffic Safety Fund for a speed reduction project and the funds received by the Town are just under $14,000. The funds have gone to fully cover the purchase of the two digital speed boards. These boards will be pole mounted at different locations around town to increase awareness and work to improve driving behavior with respect to speed. These digital boards are not for enforcement, they are to create awareness and will gather non identifying traffic speed data for vehicles travelling over the posted to be used as part of the speed reduction project.

We expect to have the two boards installed in the coming weeks.
