66 Street Overnight Traffic Disruptions

Noise, Notice, Vehicle

EDMONTON, AB – September 13, 2019 – Starting on or about September 20, 2019, overnight work will be commencing along 66 Street. The work will be occurring in phases, starting around 38 Avenue and moving south.

The work at each location will last a few days. The entirety of this work will occur between September 20 to October 11, 2019.

In order to not interrupt traffic during the day, crews will have to perform all of this work during night hours. TransEd is aware that overnight noise is disruptive and has taken several noise mitigation actions in advance of this work.  Further, crews will make every effort to complete the most disruptive works before midnight.

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

  • One lane in each direction on 66 Street will be maintained.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained.

During this time please watch for and observe all traffic detours and direction of construction personnel.

There will be hydrovacing associated with this work. A hydrovac is a machine that allows crews to safely excavate around pipes and gas lines without the danger of hitting them. Hydrovacs can be quite loud but they are the best tool for safe excavation.

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.
