What to expect during construction
If you would like more information on LRT construction, please reach out to us at:
Depending on your location along the route you may experience a water outage during the course of the planned construction work. If we have to shut off the water main temporarily during construction, you will receive written notice at least 24 hours in advance. Water service will typically resume within eight hours.
Temporary water lines
If we need to shut off your water during construction for longer than eight hours, we will provide you with a temporary above ground water supply. There will be no consumption charge for water provided through the temporary line. You will only pay the monthly basic charge for water supply and any water consumption provided by regular metering service.
Depending on your location along the route you may experience a power outage during the course of the planned construction work. Power will typically be restored within four hours.
We will ensure all appropriate permits and approvals are in place, including City of Edmonton noise permits, On-Street Construction & Maintenance Permit (OSCAM) and traffic accommodation plan (TAP).
Work space and environment
All work areas will be maintained in a safe and secure manner. All construction activities will be performed in accordance with the City of Edmonton's bylaws, Occupational Health and Safety requirements as well as EPCOR's strict health, safety, and environmental procedures and guidelines.
Work will create typical noise associated with construction. We will take measures to ensure compliance with the City of Edmonton's Community Standards Bylaw for Noise Control.
Depending on your location along the route, traffic delays may occur as a result of temporary lane or road closures that are needed to safely complete our utility relocations. Appropriate signage and barricades will be placed to advise of these temporary traffic disruptions. EPCOR works closely with the City of Edmonton's Traffic Control Department to minimize traffic disruption and impacts that may occur as a result of our utility relocation work.
