Crews are getting ready to start construction on International Avenue in mid-April.

They will be out working on traffic light bases at 42 and 33 Street, ENMAX will be doing utility work at 28 and 30 Street, and prepping the roadway and detoured sections to get ready for construction.

In May the project will be shifting westbound traffic between 26 and 30 Street S.E. to the south side of 17 Avenue S.E.

The BRT bridges are taking shape and the girders have been installed on all three bridges. Over the next month crews will continue the work on the three bridges and the nearby retaining walls.

On April 14, the temporary traffic lights at 9 Avenue and 19 Street S.E. and at Blackfoot Trail and 19 Street S.E. will be activated. Later in April, a traffic detour will be set up for northbound traffic from 19 Street onto Blackfoot trail.
