EDMONTON, Alta. — Contracts have been awarded for the construction of two bridges over the North Saskatchewan River at the end of Edmonton’s Anthony Henday Drive.
The bridges will be an important part of the city’s ring road, and will be built four kilometres southeast of 45th Ave.
“The Anthony Henday Drive project forms one quarter of the total Edmonton ring road and will link Highway 16 to Calgary Trail,” says Ed Stelmach, Minister of Transportation. “It will be a tremendous addition to Edmonton’s roadway network allowing for people and goods to move more safely and efficiently.”
The bridges are expected to have a $29-million price tag attached, but construction is expected to begin this spring. The bridges are slated for completion in the fall of 2005.
Each bridge will initially have two lanes but they will be able to accommodate four lanes of traffic each when it becomes necessary to add capacity.
