Whitemud Drive Bridge at 66/75 Street – Major Lane Closure

EDMONTON, AB – August 1, 2017 – This is a reminder that there is still ongoing construction on the outside lanes in both directions of the Whitemud Drive bridge at 66/75 Street. Speed will be reduced from 80 km/hr to 50 km/hr. Once this construction is complete, the inside lanes will be closed in both directions and the outside lanes will remain open. Please drive carefully and follow all construction signs.

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

  • There is a speed reduction in this area to 50 km/hr.
  • The Whitemud bridge at 66/75 Street will have alternating lane closures.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained

Alternate Routes:                                                                            

  • To avoid any potential delays, motorists can use 91 Street or 50 Street as alternate routes.

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 nighttime hours in order to minimize major daytime traffic disruptions. (City of Edmonton Bylaw C14600).

Vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic disruptions will vary by location. During this time please watch for, and observe, all traffic detours and direction of construction personnel. We appreciate your patience as we build the Valley Line LRT.
