The overpass along 107 Avenue over Groat Road is being upgraded to meet current and future needs.

Construction Update - March 2022

Stage two construction on the Glenora Bridge Rehabilitation project begins early April and is anticipated to be complete by the end of summer 2022.

Starting March 31, 107 Avenue will be reduced to 1 lane in each direction from 130 Street to 135 Street. Left turns from 107 Avenue to Groat Road will be maintained and the off ramps from Groat Road to 107 Avenue will be reduced to one lane.

Starting early June, Groat Road will be reduced to 1 lane in each direction, north of 107 Avenue to south of 107 Avenue. Speed in the area will be reduced to 50 km/hour. The lane reductions on Groat Road are needed to help with construction underneath the bridge.

Pedestrian access will be maintained on one side during construction. Please watch for detours.

Lane reductions to 107 Avenue and Groat Road will be in place for the duration of the project, with work anticipated to be complete in August 2022. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we complete this work.

About the Project

Glenora Bridge is an overpass along 107 Avenue over Groat Road. Originally constructed in 1967, the bridge acts as a major roadway that has reached the end of its service life and needs to be rehabilitated for safety. The rehabilitation will allow for Glenora Bridge to be used for decades in the future, providing a safe and efficient connection. Rehabilitation details include:

  • Girder repairs

  • Replacement of the current concrete surface

  • Deck joint replacement

  • A new surface drain at the east abutment

  • Strengthening items including the girders to account for heavy load vehicles

Previous upgrades to the bridge include strengthening and rehabilitation work that was complete between 1994-1997. Once rehabilitated, Glenora Bridge will continue to serve as a main overpass for the area and will keep 3 lanes of traffic and a sidewalk in each direction.
