A road the mayor once called the worst in High River has finally been made into a real drivable road.

The Hampton's Bypass Road is open.

It opened early this morning.


The Town says pathway paving, landscaping and a pathway connection to Sunrise will be completed next year.

The Bypass Road cost about $2.5 million and has been in the works for several years.
