Dear Editor,

It is nearing May long weekend and camper after camper and boat after boat are stopping at the 781/11 intersection and sitting, and sitting because they are lost.

Alberta Transportation (AT) promised to put up better signage on the roads, they have done nearly nothing. There are no signs directing them to the campgrounds that they can see only meters away.

There is also no sign on 50th St. directing traffic south to Markerville, Penhold, Spruceview, Innisfail and even Calgary.

A new overpass was built at Innisfail to streamline traffic to and from Calgary to Sylvan, now that highway is a dead-end.

AT continues to drop the ball, now there is not enough funding for Memorial Trail, what next?

The carnage could begin at any moment.

Have a good weekend and pray for the travellers on the roads around Sylvan and other areas. i.e. Highway #63.

Ken Somerville,

Sylvan Lake
