Planned Track Work - September 14-15 and September 21-22
On September 14-15 and 21-22, Metro Line trains only run between Health Sciences/Jubilee and NAIT. During these weekends, all train departure times will be adjusted by 4 minutes, so please plan ahead using the Trip Planner or use real-time tools.
97 Street Detours
From the start of service on August 6 until August 28, the intersection at 97 Street and 102 Avenue will be closed so TransEd can continue building the Valley Line LRT. Buses will resume their regular routes at the start of service on Thursday, August 29, 2019.
As a result, ETS will detour routes 3, 14, 100, 109, 161, 162 and 308 off 97 Street. These routes will all detour onto 95 Street between Jasper Avenue and 103A Avenue.
Route 560 to Spruce Grove will also detour off 97 Street. Morning trips on Route 560 will operate on 100 Street, and afternoon trips will operate on 95 Street. St. Albert bus routes 201, 207 and 211 will also detour off 97 Street. Customers can find more information about St. Albert Transit detours on their website.
Orange and white detour notices will be installed on posts next to closed bus stops and new temporary stops in advance of the detours.
During this construction, ETS customers may experience service delays as buses navigate construction sites and manage roadways with increased traffic.
This is the final of three planned intersection closures along 102 Avenue this summer. In May, ETS detoured 15 routes due to the closure at 101 Street and 102 Avenue. In June, ETS detoured 21 routes due to the closure at 100 Street and 102 Avenue.
