Date set for opening of Junction 42 Partnership Rest Area parking lot

J42 (2)

Anticipated date of October 15 for opening parking area at intersection of Hwy 2 and 42.

Red Deer County has determined a weather dependent date of October 15 for the opening of a parking lot rest area at the Junction 42 Partnership Rest Area. The parking area will be located at the northwest corner of highways 2 and 42.

The rest area will provide commercial truck traffic the opportunity to pull off the highway and rest, as well as using temporary washrooms. The area will have potable hot and cold water, and will be well lit for safety.

Overall, the Junction 42 plan area encompasses approximately 118 hectares (291 acres) of land located 9.5 kilometers south of the City of Red Deer. The site is directly adjacent to the boundary of the Town of Penhold, within an area north and west of the Highway 2 & 42 overpass. The Alberta Transportation service road along Gasoline Alley West is now closed, which required another area for commercial vehicles to pull off the highway.

Red Deer County Economic Development Officer Sandra Badry commented, “We have heard a lot of feedback from the commercial vehicle sector. They have a need for a rest area along the QE2 highway, and Red Deer County has partnered with the Alberta Transportation to respond to this need.”
