Edmonton LRT project hits key milestone
CITY OF EDMONTON — The worksite at 87 Ave. where bridge girders are being installed for the Anthony Henday LRT bridge, part of the Valley Line West LRT project.

EDMONTON, ALTA. – A bridge girder installation for Edmonton’s Valley Line West LRT project is being hailed as a key milestone.

Project builder Marigold Infrastructure Partners began work overnight on Jan. 18. with crews installing bridge girders for the new Anthony Henday Drive LRT Bridge at 87 Avenue. Ten girders were installed overnight from Jan. 18 to Jan. 21.

Now that the girders are installed, additional work will begin on the girders requiring overnight single-lane closures on Anthony Henday Drive which will take approximately one month to complete, a City of Edmonton release said.

The Anthony Henday Drive LRT bridge, one of two new bridges being built for Valley Line West, will connect West Edmonton to Lewis Farms, the release said, with the other new bridge crossing Groat Road at Stony Plain Road.

Light rail vehicles (LRVs) will share the Stony Plain Road Bridge with motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, but the new bridge over Anthony Henday Drive will be solely for Valley Line LRVs.
