The eastbound bridge is expected to be completed in late June and the Twinning project is estimated to be completed September 2017.
This bridge will also result in new infrastructure meeting current City of Grande Prairie standards.
The need for the new bridge and the 68 Avenue twinning was identified in the 2009 Transportation Master Plan and 2000 68th Avenue Functional Planning Study.
The final phases of the 68 Avenue Twinning and Eastbound Bridge Projects recommences in spring 2017. This project is designed to meet the demands of the increased traffic volume and insure that the infrastructure meets the servicing standards of the City of Grande Prairie. As part of the project’s completion, the intersection of 100 Street and 68 Avenue is to be lowered to allow for commercial truck heights and for the installation of new storm lines and upgrades to the existing ones. Currently, the project is on Phase 2.
Phase 1 is to be constructed from the bridge on 68 Avenue up to the intersection on 100 Street. This phase includes pouring concrete and a bottom lift of asphalt. No traffic disruption along 68 Avenue is expected during this phase.
Phase 2 follows along from the intersection at 68 Avenue and 100 Street and goes east along 68 Avenue and south along 100 Street. Traffic traveling north and south along 100 Street between 68 and 67 Avenue is to be shut down during this phase. For access to Country Club areas please use 68 Avenue and Poplar Drive or 63 Avenue and Resources Road. This phase includes concrete pouring and both bottom and top lifts of asphalt. Please note that east and west traffic along 68 Avenue remains open.
Phase 3 takes place along the west bound lane on 68 Avenue, leading up to the bridge. North and south traffic are planned to be closed to allow for completion. Detours and re-routing are planned during Phases 2 and 3. A pedestrian accommodation plan is being created in conjunction with traffic accommodation plans for the project. This information will be released when available.The east and west traffic along 68 Avenue is to be maintained during construction. It is anticipated that there the intersection of 68 Avenue and 100 Street will remain open at all times during construction.
The new bridge and road construction projects originally started in spring of 2016. Both projects are expected to be completed latest by fall this year.
