Construction zone extended on 100 Street in old bypass project

The construction zone on 100 street adjacent to the Prairie Mall is extending on July 16th, as construction will be ongoing on 100 Street between 132 Avenue and 116 Avenue, according to the City of Grande Prairie.

As a result, the southbound lanes will be closed and the northbound lanes will facilitate two-way traffic. Additionally, the inner turning lane on 116 Avenue eastbound to 100 Street northbound is closed.

Periodic closures of the intersection of 124 Avenue and 100 Street will occur as the project progresses.

Background: A third lane will be added to 100 Street southbound from north of 124 Avenue to north of 116 Avenue. Traffic will be down to one lane southbound and northbound during the work and sidewalk closures are also expected. Public transit is also likely to be impacted by the work in mid-July and the city says more information will be provided in the coming weeks.

The roadwork includes storm infrastructure removal and replacement, concrete removals and installation, road surface reconstruction, line painting, signage, and landscaping.

Crews are expected to be out from Monday until Saturday, with the work estimated to be finished by October 2022. The city took over the construction of the old bypass from Alberta Transportation in 2019.
