Dangerous ‘Cardiff Corner’ getting traffic safety upgrades – Edmonton

EDMONTON – A dangerous intersection north of Edmonton will see some major upgrades completed by September.

The intersection of Cardiff Road and Highway 2 near Morinville is getting traffic lights, guard rails, and street lights to improve safety.

The speed limit is also being lowered from 100 km/h to 80 km/h.

The project will cost the province about $1 million.
