41A Avenue – Trail Closure

EDMONTON, AB – April 21, 2017 – Starting on or around May 1st, the trail access north of 41A Avenue between Millbourne Road and 66 Street will be closed for public use until mid-July for the removal of trees and third-party utility work related to underground pipelines. These closures will affect both cyclists and pedestrians to help ensure the safety of workers during Valley Line LRT construction.

Motorists travelling along 66 Street may have to shift lanes to accommodate this work, but all four lanes will remain open.

We ask for your understanding and patience as construction progresses. For the most current, up-to-date information in your area, please visit http://transedlrt.ca/advisories/.

The following work will be done in your area:
