Crane in place; City modifying parking bans
The large support crane needed to stabilize the buckled girders on the 102 Avenue Bridge Replacement Project is now erected on site. The project team is finalizing its girder stabilization strategy.
In support of the ongoing Groat Road closure, the City is constantly evaluating traffic volumes on connecting routes and adjacent roadways, and has determined that both parking and travel demand can be accommodated midday and evenings in some areas. Parking restrictions are being removed or modified along several routes to allow midday and overnight parking. By doing so, the City is able to maintain traffic flow and support business and community access.
By end of day Thursday, March 19, three locations will revert to previous parking conditions:
- 109 Street from 88 Avenue to 82 Avenue, and from the High Level Bridge to 104 Avenue
- 124 Street from 102 Avenue to Stony Plain Road
- 105 Street from 102 Avenue to 104 Avenue
Daytime, nighttime and weekend parking will be permitted on both sides, with AM/PM peak hour tow-away zones remaining in effect.
By end of day Friday, March 20, two locations will be modified with some parking restrictions remaining in effect until Groat Road reopens.
- 124 Street from Stony Plain Road to 107 Avenue. Daytime, nighttime and weekend parking will be permitted on both sides. This location will remain as AM/PM peak hour ‘no parking’ (6:00-9:00 a.m. and 3:30-6:30 p.m. Mon-Fri) until Groat Road re-opens.
- 124 Street from 107 Avenue to 111 Avenue on the west side will have AM/PM peak hour tow-away zones in effect.
One location will maintain existing parking restrictions until Groat Road re-opens:
- 116 Street from 100 Avenue to Jasper Avenue, east side.
Previously announced traffic signal modifications and traffic detours remain in place. The City thanks Edmonton residents and commuters for their continued patience as we work to re-open Groat Road.
