Baseline bridge work staggered to reduce disruption

Periodic lane closures along Anthony Henday Drive near Baseline Road will allow for work on new six-lane bridge.

Construction crews will begin installing deck panels for a new six-lane bridge as part of the Northeast Anthony Henday Ring Road project.  Lane closures will take place in stages to ensure continuous traffic flow for motorists.

Baseline Road interchange

Dates: November 7 to November 14, weather permitting

As crews work on the new six-lane Baseline Road bridge over Henday Drive, traffic accommodation near the work site will take place in three stages over the week:

  • Southbound Anthony Henday Drive is restricted to one lane, between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., for approximately two days.
  • Anthony Henday Drive is down to one lane in each direction, between the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for approximately two days.
  • Northbound Anthony Henday is limited to one lane, between the hours of 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for approximately two to three days.

Additional information

  • Fines for speeding double in construction zones.
  • Using Alberta’s P3 model for highways allows Northeast Anthony Henday Drive to be finished in 2016, three years earlier than through conventional delivery and at a savings of $370 million for taxpayers.
  • The Alberta government has committed more than $4 billion toward the construction of the Edmonton ring road, including the northeast section, a $1.81 billion investment.
  • This project is one of many that deliver on Alberta Transportation’s Building Alberta commitment to support the economy and increase market access by focusing on capital plan projects for core infrastructure and key corridors.
