Aug 1, 2023 – Beginning about August 3, 2023, crews will be applying the weed spray Glyphosphate (a broad spectrum herbicide) along the Southeast Valley Line LTR route along 28 Avenue, 66 Street and 75 Street. This work will take approximately 10 days. Work will occur during the daytime hours only, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., weather permitting.
Although not generally harmful to people and pets, please avoid walking in the area that has been sprayed until it has dried (temperature and humidity will impact dry time). The public is strongly advised not to access newly planted grass areas or shrub beds.
TransEd has an Integrated Pest Management Plan with the goal to minimize the use of pesticides and to use them as a last resort after mechanical and other measures have been used or if deemed required by the Alberta Weed Control Act. All herbicide applications are reviewed by the City of Edmonton before spraying commences and notices are sent to the public. All applications must follow provincial and federal regulations and must utilize a licensed applicator to do so. Areas with exemptions are not sprayed.
