The City of Edmonton is testing a month-long traffic closure at 101 Avenue near 50 Street.
From September 23 to October 21, 101 Avenue will be closed to westbound traffic, west of 50 Street. The westbound travel direction will be accommodated on Terrace Road. Large trucks are to access 101 Avenue via 75 Street. Westbound travel will still be available on 101 Avenue from 57 Street or 71 Street.

Can’t make it? That’s ok! You can complete this survey to share your feedback.
When combined with the traffic data the City will collect, it will inform next steps as the 101 Avenue project evolves.
Testing the westbound closure responds to the concerns shared by the public during the 101 Avenue Corridor Study about large truck traffic using 101 Avenue instead of Terrace Road.
Results will help inform whether this change should become permanent when the street is renewed and reconstructed.
The changed access and permanent westbound closure would support the long term vision for 101 Avenue by reducing short cutting, unnecessary traffic and contributing to a better pedestrian experience along 101 Avenue. It would align with Council's Vision Zero and ConnectEdmonton strategic goals.
