February 20, 2020 – On February 25, 2020 TransEd crews will be temporarily closing a section of the center of 75 Street on the north side of 51 Avenue. This closure is to locate services in advance of future signal light installation in this intersection. To accommodate this work, the inside lanes of 75 Street will be closed from approximately 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. Flaggers will be present to maintain traffic flow.
To accommodate this work, the public will be impacted in the following areas:
- A section of the inside lanes on 75 Street north of 51 Avenue will be temporarily closed.
- Flaggers will be present to direct traffic.
- There will be noise associated with this work.
- Pedestrian access will be maintained.
There will be hydrovacing associated with this work. A hydrovac is a machine that allows crews to safely excavate around pipes and gas lines without the danger of hitting them. Hydrovacs can be quite loud but they are the best tool for safe excavation.
During this time please watch for and observe 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.
