If you drive on 87th Avenue between 163 Street and Anthony Henday Drive, be aware that April 9 is a day of borehole testing between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Summerlea board members Christine Belter and Rusk Redmond regularly attend the meetings of the City of Edmonton’s LRT working group to receive the latest information and updates about the Valley Line West LRT and everything related to it. Here are the messages from the most recent meeting:
- This year’s activities include the preliminary boreholes and site laydown.
- The temporary transit centre, which is planned for the overflow parking lot along 90th Avenue, is a City of Edmonton project (not in the scope of the Marigold consortium who are building the LRT).
- The City LRT communications is willing to give us two information sessions in May for Summerlea residents. They are proposing the last week in April, so stay tuned.
The latest construction notice details the pre-works starting on March 29 on 87 Avenue, 156 Street, Stony Plain Road, 104 Avenue, and 102 Avenue.
The City informed us that there will be some tree removals in the West Edmonton Mall overflow parking lot north of 90th Avenue and east of 175th Street. These removals are taking place to prepare for the construction of the temporary transit centre.
