Glenmore Dam

Parking restriction

Information

​Due to construction traffic and restricted public access, parking will be temporarily eliminated north of 14 ST SW u-turn at the entrance to the Glenmore dam project site. This parking restriction is necessary to minimize potential safety issues between the public and  construction traffic associated with this project. Parking will be restored once the project is complete.

The second phase of the Glenmore Dam Infrastructure Improvements Program is now underway, and includes a new bridge deck with better access for maintenance and pathway users, concrete work on the face of the dam, and a new steel gate and hoist system.

About the project

  • The decommissioned (out of service) gas and water lines on the bridge deck will be removed.
  • The entire bridge deck will be demolished.
  • Concrete rehabilitation work will be performed on the dam face and deck support elements, including modifications to the spillway face.
  • Additional anchoring will be placed through the dam structure.
  • New, 2.5m high steel gates, complete with automated hoists, will be installed on the dam spillway.
  • A new bridge deck, including an elevated hoist/maintenance platform, will be constructed.

Construction impacts:

  • The public pathway across the Glenmore Dam bridge deck will be closed from September 30th, 2017 until project completion (estimated spring 2020). A detour is in place, as is signage.
  • The primary work/laydown area will be located on the south side of Glenmore Dam – access to the site will be from 14th Street SW. Additional work areas will be established north of the dam – access to these will be through the Glenmore Water Treatment Plant North Gate, off of 50th Avenue SW.
  • The Glenmore Reservoir may need to be lowered to facilitate certain components of construction – reservoir users have been engaged through City Recreation and updates will be issued accordingly.
  • Construction vehicles, equipment and a laydown area for supplies will occupy only the defined work areas. The construction area will be fenced off for safety with no public access to these areas.
  • Work will be performed from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturdays for approximately 2 ½ years. Periods of 24 hour activity are anticipated but are not expected to cause noise related issues.
  • No impacts to traffic are expected.

Construction Duration:

  • Construction is expected to take approximately 2 ½ years to complete and will begin September 2017.
