Road closures planned near South Edmonton Common this weekend


Edmonton residents heading to South Edmonton Common will experience road closures in the eastbound lanes along 23 Avenue, across Calgary Trail and Gateway Boulevard, due to roadworks.

The roads will be closed from 7pm on Friday 12th July and are expected to remain closed until 11.59pm on Sunday 14th July. Motorists should travel via Parsons Road, 34 Avenue and Ellerslie Road.

The closure also includes the northbound off-ramp from Gateway Boulevard to 23 Avenue eastbound and westbound, as well as the northbound on-ramp from 17 Avenue to 23 Avenue eastbound and westbound.

Edmonton Police Service personnel will be on site to assist with traffic control. Drivers will be notified of the closures by signs.

The City of Edmonton has stated in a press release that the intersection with 23 Avenue is experiencing heavy traffic and that repairs to the road surface are necessary to address the rough and uneven asphalt surface caused by natural settlement.
