The eastbound lanes of 23 Avenue, which cross Calgary Trail and Gateway Boulevard, will be closed this weekend for roadwork.

The closure also includes the northbound off-ramp from Gateway Boulevard and the northbound on-ramp from 17 Avenue to 23 Avenue.

The city said the closure is necessary so crews can repair the “rough and uneven asphalt surface caused by natural settlement.”

“The City recognizes that the intersection with 23 Avenue is experiencing heavy traffic and thanks residents for their patience and understanding as crews work to improve the condition of the road,” the City said in a news release Tuesday.

Signs will be posted to warn drivers of the closure, and Edmonton police officers will be in the area to help direct traffic.

The closure will begin at 7 p.m. Friday and is expected to last until approximately midnight Sunday.
