Alberta Transportation’s (AT) Highway 779 Project continues with grade widening between 57 Avenue and 55 Avenue. Curb and gutters are scheduled to be poured this Friday (June 26) and Saturday (June 27). Grade widening is progressing along 49 Avenue and south along 48 Street from 49 Avenue with excavation of the roadway extending down to 51 Avenue. Topsoil is being placed in the boulevards south of 57 Avenue, behind the multi-use trail, and in the ditches. Seeding of these areas will begin later this week.

Periodic closures of the outside southbound lane are expected and the east accesses to the back lanes between 50 Avenue and 52 Avenue are temporarily closed to traffic. Access lanes will reopen once the granular base course has been placed. The concrete curb and gutter are scheduled to be poured along 49 Avenue this Friday and Saturday.

ATCO Gas is continuing with gas main relocation work in the area. It is anticipated that all back lanes on the east side of 48 Street will be reopened to traffic by early July and on the west side of 48 Street by the end of July.
