Project Update - January 2019

Rehabilitation to Victoria Trails Bridges was completed in 2018.

About the Project

In 2017/2018, the City rehabilitated 2 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 took 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 4 lanes of traffic with a sidewalk on the east side. The rehabilitation included:

  • 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 2 lanes of traffic plus a turning lane in each direction with a sidewalk on the east side. The rehabilitation included:

  • 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 occurred in 3 stages. The first stage consisted of median removal in order to allow for 2 stages. Stages 2 and 3 involved closing half the bridge for construction while the other half maintained at least 1 lane of traffic in each direction.
