83 Street Lane Reduction

SECOND UPDATE:  This work has been rescheduled to begin August 8, 2019 and is expected to last for six weeks, three weeks of work on the west side followed but three weeks of the same work on the east side.

UPDATE: This work has been postponed to July 26, 2019. Thank you for your patience.

EDMONTON, AB – July 3, 2019 – Starting on or around July 22, 2019, 83 Street between 84 Avenue and the Bonnie Doon traffic circle will be shifted to the east side of the road for approximately three weeks. Once this work is complete, traffic will shift to the west side of the road for approximately three weeks. This work is to install rail bed and rail in this area.

There will be one lane in each direction during this time.

To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas:

  • 83 Street between the Bonnie Doon traffic circle and 84 Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
  • Pedestrian access will vary throughout construction. Please watch for and observe all construction signs and personnel.

There will be overnight noise associated with this work. This lane shift is to accommodate final road configuration in the area. This means that rail bed will be installed and the roads will be paved. This does involve breaking through concrete and will be disruptive. Crews will endeavor to have the loudest work complete by 10:00 p.m.

TransEd is committed to following all City of Edmonton bylaws and regulations and has obtained an overnight roadwork permit so that work can take place during nighttime hours in order to minimize major daytime traffic disruptions. *City of Edmonton Bylaw C14600.
