Media Advisory: Minister to Participate in Demonstration of Rumble Strips

The Honourable Dianne Whalen, Minister of Transportation and Works, will observe the installation of rumble strips on the Trans-Canada Highway tomorrow (Tuesday, May 13).

Officials from Humber Valley Paving will install the rumble strips at 12:00 noon near Paddy�s Pond, across from Islander R.V. Rumble strips are milled out sections outside the white shoulder line that alert inattentive drivers if they begin veer off the highway.

This construction season, 250 kilometres of rumble strips will be installed on sections of the Trans-Canada Highway throughout the province.
