Crews have completed adding girders for expansion of the westbound bridge over the North Saskatchewan River and are preparing to begin work on the eastbound bridge.
Starting Sept. 29, the North Saskatchewan eastbound bridge will be closed between 8 p.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. Monday each week, for the next four to six weeks, depending on weather conditions.
The expansion project is widening the route from four to six lanes and this stage will have crews adding an extra lane in each direction on the bridge, resulting in the closures.
Traffic will be limited to one lane in each direction on the westbound bridge.
Oversize and overweight loads will not be permitted at any time during this work.
- Motorists are encouraged to use Whitemud Drive as an alternate route.
- Speed limits will be reduced to 60 km/hr at the bridge.
- Keep up to date on this and other highway projects at 511 Alberta.
