On Tuesday, September 5, 2017 work began on phase 1 of the 48th Avenue Bridge Replacement Project. This two-phase construction is expected to be completed in August 2018, with a full closure of 48th Avenue between 53rd and 51St Street beginning in early 2018.
Currently, work is progressing on phase 1 of the bridge project. This involves placement of rock and other fill material within Mirror Lake to accommodate for the widened road. The yellow booms within the lake, attached to netting, are required during this placement for a few purposes. These nets were initially placed along the shoreline, and then were stretched out into the lake to move all fish and aquatic life out of the construction area. As well, during construction, the nets will keep all stirred-up sediment from polluting the lake.
During phase 1 of the construction, there will be partial closure of the roadway and the sidewalks. However, no more than one lane will be closed at a time, and the sidewalk closures will occur at the same time as the lane closure. Pedestrians will still be able to travel between 51st and 53rd street at all times during phase 1 using the opposite sidewalk to where the contractor (PSA Construction) is working.
Stay tuned for more updates. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the City of Camrose’s Engineering department at email@example.com or at 780-672-4428.
