Glenmore Trail bridge removal (east of Blackfoot)

A bridge on Glenmore Trail between Blackfoot Trail and 11th Street S.E. is being replaced with a roadway. The bridge has reached the end of its lifespan and has become a maintenance liability. 

 Instead of replacing it, The City opted for a roadway. A road costs less to build and maintain than a bridge. (Photo source: CP Rail)

The CP spur line bridge will be removed May long weekend. This will have a large traffic impact. Confirmation on whether the work is going ahead or not will happen on May 17, as the work is very weather dependent and time sensitive. 

Please stay tuned to media on the morning of May 17 as Roads will make the final call on whether the work will go ahead as planned.

As you know, the speed limit in this area along Glenmore Trail has already been reduced, and this week the lanes will be narrowed in preparation for the work.  The Roads Department also set up Variable Message Boards this past weekend to let people know that they should expect delays on the upcoming May long weekend.

The City has reached out to the province to see that they get messaging out to residents using Deerfoot Trail about the closure of the ramp on May long weekend as well.
