Permanent directional change coming to 102 Avenue
May 19, 2017 

Beginning at 9 a.m., Tuesday, May 23, 102 Avenue will be permanently closed to westbound traffic from 116  to 121 Street. The directional closure is a part of the 102 Avenue Bike Route.

During the construction of the bike route, parking on 102 Avenue between 116  and 121 Street will be affected, with a phased ban on the south side of the street. The parking ban will move as construction continues and will be reinstated once the bike route is complete.

The north sidewalk on 102 Avenue will also be closed in segments to align with needed construction activities, and will reopen when the project is complete. No bus stops will be affected. All modes of transportation are reminded to watch for changes as the construction of the bike route continues throughout 2017. The City of Edmonton thanks residents for their patience. 

The 102 Avenue Bike Route runs from 111  to 136 Street, connecting the communities of Downtown, Oliver, Westmount and Glenora. Construction of the shared-use path from 136 Street to Connaught Drive was completed in 2016. Construction of the remainder of the route is expected to conclude in 2017, pending dependent on the completion of utility work.
