Overnight Lanes Closures for Detection Loop Installation – 85 Street Between 90 Avenue and 95 Avenue

Noise, Notice, Vehicle

June 25, 2020 – Starting on or about July 6, 2020 crews will be installing Detection Loops on 85 Street from 90 Avenue to 95 Avenue. Detection loops are cut into the road and connected to the traffic cabinet. When a vehicle drives over the loop, or stops on the loop, it will activate the traffic changes. This overnight work will occur from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and is expected to last three nights. To accommodate this work, the northbound lane will be closed to traffic between 90 Avenue to 95 Avenue, on July 6.  The southbound lane of 85 Street from 95 Avenue to 90 Avenue will be closed to traffic July 7 and 8.  Flaggers will be on hand to assist motorists. 

There will be noise associated with this work such as saw cutting and small machinery moving.  In order to not interrupt traffic during the day, crews will have to perform this work during night hours, however, they will endeavor to complete the noisiest work early in the evening.

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

  • Closure of the northbound lane on 85 Street from 90 Avenue to 95 Avenue July 6
  • Closure of the southbound lane on 85 Street from 95 Avenue to 90 Avenue July 7 & 8.
  • There will be overnight noise associated with this work, primarily saw cutting.
  • Pedestrian access will be maintained.
  • Flaggers will be on hand to assist traffic.

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

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.
