As part of Alberta Transportation’s (AT) Highway 779 construction project, the 55 Avenue intersection was reopened to traffic late yesterday afternoon. Crews will be closing the 51 Avenue intersection to accommodate reconstruction starting at 9AM on Friday, September 18 and then closing the 52 Avenue intersection on Monday, September 21 at 9AM to accommodate realignment of the west side of the intersection.

Emergency services have been notified of these two upcoming closures and flyers will be distributed to the affected residences and businesses in the area later today. Crews will be setting up electronic message boards both south and north of these intersections this morning informing drivers of closures. It is anticipated these two intersections will reopen to traffic in two weeks.
