Much of the work to prepare Valley Line West for construction goes on underground where a large network of electric, water, gas and telecommunications utility infrastructure is located. Utilities in some areas must be relocated to make way for LRT infrastructure, like the tracks that will be built to carry the trains.
Downtown (102 Avenue and 103 Street) - Early July until end of August
Epcor crews will relocate electric infrastructure in the area of 103 Street and 102 Avenue. Two-way traffic will be maintained on 103 Street and 102 Avenue but crews will temporarily remove some on-street parking along with a portion of the bike lane on 103 Street. Crews will work from 7:30am and 5pm.
104 Avenue - early August for about 4 weeks
Lane reductions will be in place as Epcor crews work to construct a water line. Drivers are encouraged to detour using other routes.
142 Street and Stony Plain Road - early August until approximately August 23
Southbound 142 Street is reduced to 1 lane as Epcor crews work on utility relocations in the area. Right and left turns from 142 Street south are banned at Stony Plain Road. Westbound Stony Plain Road is reduced to 1 travel lane and 1 left-turn lane to southbound 142 Street. Left turns to 142 Street from Stony Plain Road are banned. Drivers are encouraged to detour using other routes.
