​Traffic accommodation

Phase One - 105 Avenue from 109 Street to 114 Street

During construction, sections of 105 Avenue east and westbound traffic lanes will be closed in isolated areas from 109 Street to 114 Street. The road closures will occur in three stages:

Stage 1: 109 Street to 111 Street – the eastbound driving lane will be closed and the westbound lane will remain open.
Stage 2: 111 Street to 112 Street – full road closure.
Stage 3: 112 Street to just past 113 Street – full road closure.

Other impacts

  • Temporary no parking along the south curb lane of 105 Avenue from 109 Street to 114 Street.
  • The sidewalk on the south side of 105 Avenue from 109 Street to 114 Street will be closed and pedestrians will be directed to alternate routes.
  • The bike lane on the north side of 105 Avenue will remain open during construction.
  • Flag people will be used to manage traffic and notify pedestrian/cyclists of detours.
  • Parking lot accesses may be interrupted/reduced during construction activities.

Traffic accommodation and road closures may change based on requirements from the City of Edmonton. EPCOR will update residents and business owners on traffic impacts in their area. We will be proactively communicating with impacted customers on parking lot interruptions/reductions to mitigate impacts as much as possible.

Noise

Residents may experience general construction noise as  equipment and trucks will be used for material delivery, excavation, equipment installation and surface restoration. We will comply with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control. If it is necessary to temporarily exceed acceptable noise levels, we will work with the City of Edmonton to obtain the necessary permits.

Power outages

Power outages will be required to complete this work. You will be provided with advanced notice of planned power outages that will impact you.

Landscaping

Affected landscaping, pavement and sidewalks will be restored to similar condition when weather permits. Some sidewalk areas will be restored using temporary building materials as the City of Edmonton will be re-doing sidewalks/roadways in 2021.

Safety

The construction area will be fenced and/or marked as a restricted area. We will take every precaution to ensure public safety. We also need your assistance in maintaining a safe distance from the construction site and the equipment.

COVID

EPCOR is closely monitoring the situation related to the COVID-19 outbreak. We have plans in place to manage disruptions or emergencies and we are committed to providing the services our communities count on. Protocols have been put in place for our employees while performing essential work to protect the health of our teams and our customers. We also request you take precautionary measures by maintaining a safe, two-metre distance from our crews and contractors.

Our drainage work is expected to start in the late summer with the construction of a storm tunnel and mains with service reconnections. Further information, including timelines and impacts, will be provided as we get closer to the start date of construction.
