Macleod Trail bridges over LRT/CPR and 78 Avenue South
The Macleod Trail bridges that run over the LRT/CPR and 78 Avenue S.E./S.W. will undergo rehabilitation in 2020-2021.
Remaining Scope of Work
Bridge repair under the deck is scheduled to be completed in Spring 2021. During this time, there will be no impact to traffic on Macleod Trail.
The rehabilitation work on the two bridge structures will include:
- Reconstruction of sidewalks and median
- New concrete barrier separating vehicular and pedestrian traffic
- New Cyclist railing on the sidewalk barriers
- Replacement of expansion joints with link slabs
- Deck, abutment and wingwall repair
- New concrete overlay
The budget for the rehabilitation work is $8.6 million
The two concrete bridge structures on Macleod Trail over 78 Avenue South were constructed in 1980. Each bridge has three northbound and three southbound traffic lanes with a single northbound merge lane. The first structure is a single span over a connector to 78 Avenue South in Kingsland. The second structure is a two-span structure spanning the LRT and CPR tracks east of Macleod Trail.
Apart from regular maintenance and a new surface in 1993, the bridges have not undergone any significant rehabilitation since they were constructed.
