53 Avenue Overpass

About the Project

The 53 Avenue over Whitemud Drive Overpass is a two span structure built in 1977 which carries six lanes (includes two turning lanes) of traffic over the freeway with sidewalks on both sides. Maintenance and rehabilitation of this structure is required to keep it in safe, functional condition for many more years.

Project Lifecycle - Build Phase

Where We Are

The rehabilitation design and crossover construction used for detouring traffic on Whitemud Drive were completed in 2015. The 2016 construction will include, but is not limited to:

  • remove and replace asphalt
  • replace deck, barriers and girders
  • replace deck joints and abutment bearings
  • temporary utility relocations

Project History
