FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Why has the reopening of Stony Plain Road been delayed?
The reopening of Stony Plain Road has been delayed due to several factors:
A: Unanticipated Activities
Early in the construction season, we discovered existing infrastructure that needed upgrading to ensure long-term reliability. Consultation with third-party utilities led to the decision to upgrade this infrastructure to prevent future repairs by those third-party utility agents. Additionally, we needed to remove more than originally expected.
Limited resources have posed challenges for us, as well as for other contractors in Edmonton. We are making efforts to complete the work this year by bringing in extra resources, but a skilled labour shortage is affecting our progress and the progress of other companies.
Unusually wet weather conditions in 2023 have made it challenging for large vehicles to access the construction site. These vehicles are essential for work related to both dry utilities and concrete work, which must be completed before roadworks can begin.
What can I expect during and after construction?
- To complete the remaining permanent works, there will be short-term lane restrictions in areas with temporary asphalt next season.
- Stony Plain Road will be permanently reduced to a single lane in either direction to accommodate the ongoing construction and associated infrastructure.
- We anticipate the intersection of 134 Street and Stony Plain Road to reopen in early October, with the intersection of 132 Street and Stony Plain Road reopening shortly thereafter, providing relief to local commuters.
- The Stony Plain Road Bridge remains on track to be opened by fall 2024, marking a significant milestone in the project.
Will there be any disruptions to traffic during the construction period?
Yes, there may be disruptions to traffic during construction.
- Short-term lane restrictions in areas with temporary asphalt are expected during the next construction season.
- Stony Plain Road will also be permanently reduced to a single lane in either direction. Please plan your commute accordingly and follow posted detours and traffic guidance.
- There will be noise associated with this work such as that of heavy equipment and increased construction vehicle traffic in the area. Every effort will be made to reduce the impact to the public.
- Construction on Stony Plain Road will primarily occur during daytime hours; however, some overnight work may be necessary.
- This road closure is expected to last until the end of November; however, construction will be ongoing until completion.
Will pedestrian access be available?
- East/west pedestrian access on Stony Plain Road between 131 Street and 139 Street will be closed until the end of November.
- North/south pedestrian access will be maintained at 132 Street, 134 Street, 136 Street, and 138 Street. Please follow project wayfinding signage.
