The City of Edmonton is hosting a Public Information Session to share details of the upcoming construction of the 53 Avenue Overpass over Whitemud Drive. Built in 1977, the overpass requires maintenance and rehabilitation to extend its life.
Construction is scheduled to begin in late March and will affect vehicle traffic on both the freeway and overpass, require a speed reduction on Whitemud Drive, as well as bus route modifications and pedestrian detours.
One traffic lane plus a turning lane in each direction will remain open on the overpass during construction, and two lanes in each direction on the freeway during temporary detours. Bus stops will be moved out of the construction area and pedestrians will be detoured to either side of the bridge.
If you are unable to attend the event, information materials will be posted online and comments can be shared with the City beginning March 9, 2016.
