As part of the Mill Woods Double Barrel project, a contractor will be measuring ground settlement along 23 Avenue on the two west bound lanes between 85 Street and 91 Street. Attached is a map for your reference.
Because measurements need to be made in both lanes, barricades will be in place weaving traffic between the two lanes and a flag person will be on scene controlling traffic when necessary. The speed will also be reduced to 30 km/hr in this section but signage will be posted.
In order to minimize traffic impacts, working hours will be between 9 am and 3 pm. The first equipment installation and readings will be on Thursday, January 21 and Friday, January 22 then they will return from Monday, January 25 until Friday, January 29.
These measurements will need to take place several times in the next few months so we can identify any potential movement or changes in ground conditions before tunnelling begins and during the tunnelling process.
