Lane closures – 29th St and 16th Ave – May 18-28

We have coordinated with PCL with the Cancer Centre Project who will be putting up their crane this weekend and will be having lane closures on 29 Street NW. To avoid further traffic delays in the eastbound direction, we will be limiting work to the northeast corner of the intersection where sanitary installations, as part of a Water Resources sanitary upgrade project, will be taking place. This is part of our commitment to coordinate work in the area to avoid multiple mobilizations to the site and reduce the number of times the intersection is disturbed. The sanitary upgrade will require two weekends of work, including the evening of Friday, May 18 to morning of Tuesday, May 22, and evening of Friday, May 25 to morning of Monday, May 28. Between the two weekends, the roadway will be backfilled such that full lane operations will be restored prior to rush hour traffic (5am).

Lane closures as part of this work for the weekend of May 18 – May 22:

  • Right turn lane from westbound 16 Avenue NW onto Uxbridge Drive – right turns will be permitted from the right most through lane.
  • Two westbound through lane closures on 16 Avenue NW

Closures would need to be throughout the entire weekend (24 hour closure) as there will be an open excavation in the road.

Lane closures as part of this work for the weekend of May 25 – May 27:

  • Two westbound through lane closures on 16 Avenue NW
  • Two northbound Uxbridge Drive lanes. In order to maintain the northbound traffic movement, the east most left turn lane, of the current dual turn on southbound Uxbridge Drive, will be temporarily used for northbound traffic. A temporary crossover for northbound traffic will be constructed to avoid the open excavation and maintain all directions of travel.

Closures would need to be throughout the entire weekend as there will be an open excavation as there will be an open excavation in the road.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
