Highway 2 Cable Barrier Project

In 2010, Alberta Highway Services completed the installation of a cable barrier system on Highway 2 between the City of Red Deer and the City of Airdrie. The $7.3M highway safety project is believed to be the largest cable barrier system contract in North America, including more than 22,000 posts and more than 500 km of cable installed in 45 days. The cable barrier system has provided a much needed safety feature that prevents traffic from crossing the centre median on one of Alberta’s busiest stretches of highway.
