Rally for intersection change in Wetaskiwin

A rally was organized by friends and family of Madison Stephan plus the general public July 23 at Wetaskiwin City Hall for changes to the intersection of Hwy. #13 and Sec. Hwy. #814, near the Wetaskiwin Hospital. Stephan was killed in a collision there earlier this month. Photos by Stu Salkeld

The rally suggested changes to the intersection near the Wetaskiwin Hospital.

Members of the Wetaskiwin community are lobbying for changes to an intersection where impatient drivers are alleged to be using a turning lane as a through-lane.

Changes to the intersection have included suggestions such as a roundabout.
