SECOND UPDATE Work on Whitemud Drive has been scheduled for a later date. Motorists will have full access to Whitemud Drive this weekend.
FIRST UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances we will not be going forward with the placement of the girders this weekend. We will post an update when the closure will take place. Please note that there may still be intermittent lane closures during off-peak hours.
EDMONTON, AB – April 19, 2018– Starting on or around Friday April 20, 2018, Whitemud Drive will be closed from 170m west of the 66/75 Street overpass to 230m east of the overpass. Traffic will be directed onto Whitemud off-ramps and across the overpass to continue traveling on Whitemud Drive. This closure will only happen during night hours (between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.) and will be finished by 6:00 a.m. April 23, 2018.
To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas:
- During night hours only, Whitemud Drive will be closed near 66/75 Street on the weekends.
- During the day, a portion of the jersey barriers will be replaced with posts to provide access for crews to move girders.
There will be noise associated with the work.
