Noise, Notice, Sidewalk, Trails

EDMONTON, AB – January 29, 2020 – Starting on or about February 5, 2020, TransEd will remove several trees from the east side of Louise McKinney Park to facilitate continued Valley Line construction.

This work will take place during daytime hours (7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.) and will take approximately one week to complete.
