90 Ave & 14 Street S.W. - SW BRT Construction

 
 

We have adjusted the signal timing at the 14 Street/90 Avenue intersection for eastbound traffic turning onto 14 Street S.W. Drivers will have more green time when turning left onto northbound 14 Street S.W. during rush hour. Crews have also painted additional lane markings at the intersection. We will keep monitoring this intersection and make adjustments as needed.

Crews are now working on excavation and piling for the underpass on the south side of 90 Avenue.

The final traffic detour maintains the existing number of lanes - three eastbound lanes and two westbound lanes on 90 Avenue. See the See the final detour at the intersection.

Construction update

December 10, 2018
 
Crews have completed the final tie-in of the storm water siphon at the northwest corner of the 90 Avenue and 14 Street S.W. intersection. Work continues on the south section of the vehicle bridge deck in preparation to shifting traffic to the second stage of the detour in order to begin work on the north half of the vehicle bridge. The south underpass retaining walls are currently underway, as well as the piling for the underpass and excavation for the storm water pump station.
 
Piling has been completed for the 90 Avenue S.W. pedestrian overpass in the northwest corner of the 90 Avenue and 14 Street S.W. intersection and will begin on the east side of 14 Street S.W. Utility relocations and removals on the east side of 14 Street S.W. at the 90 Avenue S.W. intersection are ongoing.
 
Crews will typically be working between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. for approximately one month to complete the piling work and residents should expect some construction noise during this time. Crews will not be working in this area from December 24 – 31 for the Christmas break. We have scheduled this work over the winter months to minimize the impacts to residents’ outdoor living spaces, and we thank you for your continued patience. We anticipate construction on a new noise barrier to start in the spring of 2019, once the ramps for the pedestrian bridge are complete replacing the current wall and extending further north to Haysboro Crescent S.W.
 

Upcoming detours and lane closures

Lane closures are typically scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There may be times when crews need to set up lane closures and detours before 9 a.m. These closures will not be in the direction of the heaviest rush hour traffic flow. Weekend closures are typically planned between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
