98 Avenue – Lane Closure

EDMONTON, AB – April 4, 2017 – Starting on or around April 10th, 98 Avenue eastbound and westbound traffic can expect single lane closures and lane shifts from 96A Street to Muttart Service Road. Any delays will be during off-peak and evening hours from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. so that night crews can gather core samples from the road for future LRT construction. Evening workers will be in the area for approximately one to two nights.

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/.

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

  • 98 Avenue eastbound and westbound traffic from Muttart Service Road to 96A Street will see single lane closers on the outside lanes during off-peak and evening hours. Motorists will be directed to shift to the inside lanes during these times. Once this work is completed, lanes will re-open for phase 2.
  • The second portion of this project will shift closures to the inside lanes for further core sampling. 

To avoid any potential delays, motorists can follow Connors Road to the north half of the 98 Avenue loop.

There will be noise associated with the work. 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 night time hours in order to minimize major daytime traffic disruptions. *City of Edmonton Bylaw C14600.

Vehicle and pedestrian traffic impactions will vary by location. During this time please watch for, and observe, all traffic detours and direction of construction personnel.
