About the Project

The 102 Avenue over Groat Road Bridge serves as a major east/west corridor into and out of Edmonton's downtown. Constructed in 1910, the bridge has reached the end of its lifespan and will be demolished and replaced with a new bridge to better serve Edmontonians.

The replacement bridge has a clear span of approximately 100 m and maintains the existing four-lane configuration. It is designed to accommodate a cycle track on the north side of the bridge between the sidewalk and outside travel lane and sidewalks along the north and south sides. The design of the new bridge considers:

  • Stabilization of both the east and west slopes using soil nails
  • Maintaining the existing four-lane configuration with wider lanes to meet current standards
  • Concrete deck with asphalt surfacing
  • Upgraded the drainage infrastructure
  • Respect the existing valley and minimize environmental impacts of the project (no piers in the valley)
  • Safety improvements on both 102 Avenue and Groat Road
  • Accessibility for other modes of transport
  • Wider sidewalks on both sides of the bridge with enhanced barrier protection providing separation between traffic and pedestrians
  • High quality cycling facility to maintain connectivity with bike routes
  • Vehicle lanes of sufficient width for ETS buses
  • A public art piece created by Alberta artist Faye Heavyshield
