    Well if they are going to be as quick with the other intersections as it seems they are being with this one it should go ok. One more year and a ton of construction sites will disappear which will improve the feel of downtown.
    LRT is our future, time to push forward.

    ^ Except, that's when they'll start tearing up 102 west to 107 street.

    At least the westbound leg will only have one busy intersection at 102 Avenue/105 Street.

    I wonder if 102 Avenue (between 100 and 101 Street) will be done by fall.

    Interesting view of the 3 buildings, which I assume will never be seen again once something replaces the old BoM building. Until that's replaced.

    102 avenue has been closed for a year or longer and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

    Walked by the 101 and 102 site today. There is a good chance the road will be paved this week. (I did see paving stone though) Final concrete forms are going in tonight.

    If you'd like to understand what 102ave will look like when complete some of the only detailed design provided to Transed as part of the agreement is for this section and can be viewed at: https://www.edmonton.ca/documents/Ro...peDrawings.pdf

    Nice pics. What a difference in a couple of months once they have the tracks in and rebuild the road. So much dust right now.

    Updates to the Cloverdale/Muttart segment. Many apologies if I've broken any width violations.

    Thanks for posting photo updates SDM! Don't worry about how wide an image is, the last image you posted isn't very wide compared to other images posted on the forum.

    That intersection was definitely done quite fast. I wonder if they will be pouring any of the track bed heading towards churchill sometime soon ir will they be focusing on the downtown intersections first?

    101 St should be re-opening this coming Friday unless other circumstances arise.

    I am hopeful about the amount of soft scaping that shows up in the drawings. Travelling around lately, it's something Edmonton really seems to struggle with. I get it, the climate is not the most conducive, but a little green goes a long way.

    June 10 is supposed to be the closure of 100 St/102 Ave intersection for 6 weeks, so they damn well better finish up soon.

    At least 101 Street/102 Avenue is on schedule. It might be a tall order, but I hope the city can finish up 100 Street in time for K-Days.

    ^^ K-Days? Parade maybe? Not sure what 100 St. has to do with K-Daze.

    Back on topic - hoping to see more progress on the NSR bridge - haven't really seen much progress.

    Unfortunately I feel they are still continuing their practice of deploying and working on part of the project and then when partially done they move on to another section without actually completing the site they were initially working on. I think they are rushing to get things done but losing more time in how they are rushing.

    It would be nice if the city could put up signs around Kingsway, Connors Road and other locations to detour away from 101 Street. It’s a zoo at 5:00 pm

    If we're 30% behind schedule & ~3 years into it, does that mean we're a year behind schedule at this point?

    Why have they left this sign up? It has to be nearing 15 years old now. Per Google, it's been there since before early 2007.

    Twenty one, thirty one, and seven twenty-seven.

    They did not say when they're coming so the sign is still correct.
