Highway 779 Update for May 7, 2021

Posted On Friday May 07, 2021

Work began on widening 49 Ave east of 48 Street on Monday May 3rd. Construction on 49 Ave is anticipated to continue until the end of May.

The outside northbound lane is closed from 49 Ave to south of 52 Ave to accommodate removal of the curb & gutter and sidewalk along the east side of 48 Street. The lane will remain closed for the next few weeks until construction of the new curb, gutter and sidewalk have been completed.

Crews are working on placing the granular base course for the multi-use trail on the west side of 48 Street, between 55 Ave and 53 Ave. The multi-use trail will be paved early next week. Once the paving is completed and the trail open to pedestrian traffic, the sidewalk on the east side of 48 Street will be closed for removal and replacement.

Landscapers will be on site next week placing topsoil and seeding the grading areas that have been completed.

The two center lanes between Willow Park Road North and 55 Ave were closed today to allow for laying out of the concrete medians. Construction of the medians will begin Monday May 10th.
