Alternative routes are in place for motorists as construction will close down a section of HWY 1A overnights this weekend.

Between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., both directions of the 1A between 4th Ave and 5th Ave will be closed for the installation of water and sanitary lines. This closure will be in effect for May 27,28 and 29.

Two detours will be in place throughout the evenings. One for small vehicles and the other to direct heavy vehicles and RVs around the area.

Cochrane residents are being advised that workers will be on-site throughout the construction to help direct traffic and are asked to take alternate routes if possible.
