There may be some delays on the Northeast section of the Anthony Henday Drive Bridge.
 
Final adjustments to the bridge connection joints will start on Thursday (September 28).
 
"These corrections on the bridges will take a total of about three weeks. There's three bridges and each will take about a week to do the corrections on," said Bill Vandermeer, project manager.
 
Bridges over the North Saskatchewan River:
- Northbound and southbound traffic between 153 Avenue and Aurum Road will be affected
- Two southbound and two northbound lanes will alternate closures over a two-week period
- The southbound bridge will be completed first, followed by the northbound bridge
 
Anthony Henday Drive/Yellowhead Trail Interchange:
- This bridge is approximately 100 metres west of the junction at the Henday and Yellowhead
- Southbound traffic on the Henday using the westbound Yellowhead ramp will be affected
- The work will require alternating closures of one lane and the shoulders on the bridge and should be completed in a one week
 
The work will be in stages to ensure some lanes of traffic remain open at all times, crews will work day and night until work is complete.
 
Speed reductions to 50 kilometres per hour will be in effect.
 
Drivers are advised take alternate routes when possible.
