Wellington Bridge Preliminary Design Concrete Arch Bridge – to be refined during detailed design
The Wellington Bridge, located on 102 Avenue between Churchill Crescent and Wellington Crescent, will be replaced.
The proposed bridge will be wider than the current bridge to accommodate a 4.2 m wide shared-use path (SUP) on the north side, a 2.8 m wide sidewalk on the south side, wider driving lanes and shoulders to meet City of Edmonton Construction and Design Standards.
The SUP on the bridge will line up with the SUP on 102 Avenue. This will reduce the number of cyclists on the road and user conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians.
Detailed design will commence in October 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in Summer 2022. The project will then be put on hold until construction of the Valley Line West LRT is completed.
Construction of the Wellington Bridge is anticipated to start between 2025 and 2028 and will take approximately two years to complete.
Project Update - September 2020
Geotechnical drilling will occur at both ends of the bridge and on the trail below the bridge in September/October 2020. This drilling will provide information required for the design of the bridge foundations.
The trail will be temporarily closed for the geotechnical drilling. Signage will be posted on the trail.
The Wellington Bridge, located on 102 Avenue between Churchill Crescent and Wellington Crescent, has been slated for replacement as it is reaching the end of its service life. Construction will be completed in coordination with Valley Line West LRT construction on Stony Plain Road. Construction is anticipated to start between 2025 and 2028.
