  COVID-19 and construction projects

Work performed by EPCOR has been designated by the Province as an essential service and this includes our construction projects. While we've suspended some in-person services to protect our teams and customers, we remain hard at work. Physical distancing, appropriate hygiene and modified approaches to our work have been added to our safety protocols. 

We still intend to move ahead with this project, but we recognize the changing impacts from COVID-19 may create challenges in how we execute our projects. 

​Project overview

The existing 99 Avenue sanitary trunk line that services over 100,000 customers needs to be replaced. This project will be completed in 2 stages, starting in Summer 2020 and we estimate the project will be finished by the end of 2023. In Stage 1 (red line in the map below), we'll build a new tunnel along 99 Avenue, north on 148 Street and east on 101 Avenue. In Stage 2 (blue line in the map below), we'll rehabilitate the existing tunnel on 99 Avenue. Once our work is done, both tunnels will be in service, increasing capacity in the trunk network.


Impacts to you 

While we try to minimize disruptions during our project work, there are some things that may affect you throughout the project, like traffic impacts and sidewalk closures.

We'll also be working on a different rehabilitation project in the same area, during the same time. Find out how this work impacts the 99 Ave project.

This project is now complete.

Tunnel Boring Machine

For this project, we'll be using a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) to excavate tunnels. Learn more about this machine and how it's used.

Construction site hoarding

We're proposing that some of the construction sites for this project incorporate artwork construction hoarding at Summit Drive and 148 Street, 99 Avenue and 148 Street and possibly other worksites.
