Field Investigation - As part of the permitting process for this project, the Project Team completed a field investigation in spring 2017 to determine if historical or archeological artifacts are present in the key portions of the project area.
Groat Road Bridge over the North Saskatchewan River
The Groat Road Bridge over the North Saskatchewan River was constructed in 1955. The last major rehabilitation of this bridge occurred in 1989-1990. Rehabilitation will extend its service life by at least 50 years and improve the functionality of the existing sidewalk by widening it to shared-use path standards.
Groat Road Bridge over Victoria Park Road
The Groat Road Bridge over Victoria Park Road was constructed in 1954. The bridge is generally in good condition but currently requires a wearing surface replacement, new deck joints and other miscellaneous repairs.
Emily Murphy Park Road Bridge over Groat Road (Mayfair Bridge)
The Emily Murphy Park Road over Groat Road bridge was constructed in 1963. The bridge is generally in good condition but required some minor rehabilitation to extend its service life until more substantial rehabilitation work is needed in 10 years or more. Additionally, the north sidewalk was widened to shared-use path standards.
Groat Road from 87 Avenue to the Groat Road Bridge over the North Saskatchewan River, including the ramps at Emily Murphy Park Road/Bridge and Hawrelak Park, were renewed as part of this project.
The sidewalks on the east side of the ramp from Emily Murphy Park Road and from the Mayfair Bridge to Hawrelak Park will be widened to shared-use path standards.
