EDMONTON, AB – November 9, 2018 – Over two weekends in January, 2019, Whitemud Drive will be closed at the 75 Street/66 Street overpass to accommodate installation of the LRT bridge spans.

An update on exact dates will be issued prior to the actual installation.

Over the first weekend, during night hours only, eastbound traffic will be directed onto Whitemud off-ramps and across the overpass to continue traveling on Whitemud Drive. Westbound lanes will be fully accessible during this closure.

On the second weekend, during night hours only, westbound traffic will be directed onto Whitemud off-ramps and across the overpass to continue traveling on Whitemud Drive. Eastbound lanes will be fully accessible during this closure.

These closures will only happen during nighttime hours (between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.) on Friday nights with Saturday nights as contingency for inclement weather.

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