Overnight Lanes Closures for Detection Loop Installation – 83 Street Between 76 Avenue and 82 Avenue

Noise, Notice, Vehicle

July 6, 2020 – Starting on or about July 13, 2020 crews will be installing Detection Loops on 83 Street from 76 Avenue to 82 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 two nights. To accommodate this work, the southbound lane will be closed to traffic between 82 Avenue and 76 Avenue on July 13.  The northbound lane of 83 Street from 76 Avenue to 82 Avenue will be closed to traffic on July 14.  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 southbound lane on 83 Street from 82 Avenue to 76 Avenue on July 13.
  • Closure of the northbound lane on 83 Street from 76 Avenue to 82 Avenue on July 14.
  • 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.
