About the Project

In 2017/2018, the City will rehabilitate two northeast area bridges on Victoria Trail: Victoria Trail over Yellowhead Trail Bridge (B163) and Victoria Trail over Kennedale Ravine Bridge (B179). Rehabilitation and functional improvements will take place on both bridges to ensure they are both operating in a safe manner for many years.

Bridge Descriptions and Rehabilitation Needs

The Victoria Trail over Kennedale Ravine Bridge (B179) was constructed in 1981 and carries four lanes of traffic with a sidewalk on the east side. The rehabilitation will include:

  • new asphalt roadway surface
  • new bridge barriers and median
  • wider sidewalk 
  • new pedestrian railing
  • new bridge deck joints
  • concrete repairs
  • re-grading of bridge headslopes
  • miscellaneous bridge repairs

The Victoria Trail over Yellowhead Trail Bridge (B163) was constructed in 1977 and carries two lanes of traffic plus a turning lane in each direction with a sidewalk on the east side. The rehabilitation will include:

  • new asphalt roadway surface
  • re-constructed bridge barriers
  • wider sidewalk 
  • new bridge deck joints
  • concrete repairs
  • new concrete median
  • new guardrail on Victoria Trail 
  • miscellaneous bridge repairs

Construction will occur in three stages. The first stage will consist of median removal in order to allow for following two stages. Stages two and three involves closing half the bridge for construction while the other half maintains at least one lane of traffic in each direction. Pedestrians and cyclists will be accommodated on both bridges during construction. 

The rehabilitation may require trail closures during construction. Details will be communicated prior to construction both onsite and online.
