At the drop-in session on Saturday, February 9th, we heard from many people that they wanted to understand the current work approach better. We apologize for not providing you with more details on the extent of the work that will be undertaken using the current approach.

Here’s what we said:

  • Work would continue to be done in a similar fashion to what residents have already experienced, but it would be more intense. TransEd will maintain two lanes of vehicle traffic on 95 Avenue going east and westbound, although these lanes will shift as work progresses.
  • Pedestrian access east and westbound along 95 Avenue will be maintained at all times, just as it has so far. The path will be primarily on the south but it will shift as work progresses to the north side of the road.
  • The work would take twice as long, and it would involve significant overnight work. We are limited with what we can do within the space available during the day. We are able to close lanes overnight, when necessary, to accommodate work and equipment when traffic levels are very light.
  • Lanes and intersection closures would vary and shift over the two years due to the nature of how we are able to construct while maintaining vehicle traffic. A full closure provides a predictable route, as opposed to one that changes more often with the current approach.

Here’s what else you should know:

  • East-west traffic on 95 Avenue will be maintained for the most part. There will be closures during night time hours (9:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.)
  • Intersections will be closed for long periods of time for north-south traffic across 95 Avenue. For example, by mid-2019, there will be no north-south access across 95 Avenue except for Connors Road/Strathearn Drive and 85 Street/95 Avenue. This closure will last until approximately late 2020.
  • 87 Street for north-south access will close temporarily during the summer of 2019 to complete road works and 90 Street will be opened when 87 Street is closed. All other north-south access will close permanently in the spring of 2019.
  • There will be no north-south traffic across 95 Avenue as of mid-2019 from Connors Road to 85 Street until late 2020, to allow for construction of the LRT track.  As of mid-2019, vehicular traffic approaching 95 Avenue form the south and the north will be right turns only.
  • Night works will occur for the majority of 2019, as well as night works in 2020 for substantial construction work activities.
  • Phase 1: For approximately 10-14 weeks, only one north-south access will be provided. Initially this will be 87 Street and then it will switch to 90 Street.
  • Phase 2 starts approximately 8-10 weeks after the first phase. 86 Street remains closed, 87 Street closes and 90 Street opens. West of 90 Street, westbound traffic will shift to the north side of 95 Avenue. As westbound traffic is opened on the north side of 95 Avenue, all northbound access to 95 Avenue will be right in/right out. This means there will be no left turns onto 95 Avenue.  Traffic will be split with eastbound traffic on the south and westbound traffic on the north side of 95 Avenue. This will last until late-2020.
  • Phase 3: The remaining north side section of 95 Avenue will be opened, westbound from 85 Street through to Connors Road. All westbound traffic will be on the north side of 95 Avenue with right in/right out access. All eastbound traffic from Connors Road to 85 Street will be on the south side of 95 Avenue with right in/right out access. LRT work will be in the middle. During this time, westbound travel will not be able to access the south and eastbound traffic will not be able to access the north. The only vehicular crossings on 95 Avenue will be at Connors Road and 85 Street. As work is completed, 87 Street and 92 Street will reopen to north-south traffic in late 2020. No other intersections will permit north-south crossings – permanently.
  • ETS service would continue east-west on 95 Avenue

Permanent Change

  • 95 Ave at all intersections will be right in/right out, eastbound or westbound. Except 87 St and 92 Street where left turns will also be permitted – with traffic lights.

This closure will last for approximately two weeks.

This work is to accommodate drainage work in the area. There will be noise associated with the work. Drainage work means that the first couple of days of work are going to be the loudest. Crews will have to break through the ground in order to access the pipes underground.

.EDMONTON, AB – June 20, 2018– Starting on or around June 26, 2018, there will be lanes closed on 100 Street at 102 Avenue to accomodate Valley Line LRT construction. Traffic will be shifted to one side of the road, leaving one lane of traffic in each direction.

There will be noise associated with this work, and TransEd is committed to doing everything possible to mitigate noise and vibrations during work in this area. In advance of this work we have moved our start time to 6:30 p.m. in an effort to finish the noisiest work before 11:00 p.m. However, there will still be some overnight noise as work continues through the night.

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

  • Overnight lane closures on 100 Street at 102 Avenue.
  • Overnight noise during work.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Alternate Routes:

  • To avoid any potential delays, motorists can use 97 Street or 101 Street as alternate routes.

These closures are to accommodate drainage work in the area, which is loudest during the first portion of the work. Crews will have to break through the concrete in order to get to the pipes underground. Once the first portion is over and crews have broken through the concrete, the work is much quieter. Nearby residents may also experience vibrations from tamping and other work.

Please note that overnight work is necessary to ensure adequate traffic and pedestrian flow and accessibility to the area including nearby buildings and parkades.
