Construction is about to start along Highway 15.
 
Work to repair and improve the Highway 15 bridge between Fort Saskatchewan and Sturgeon County will be underway starting on June 19.
 
The maintenance work to the underside of the bridge will include upgrades to its concrete piers, guardrails and drains.
 
Construction will mostly occur under the bridge, so the effect on traffic should be minimal. Lane closures will be rare, but if they are required, they would occur overnight to eliminate the impact on traffic during peak hours.

Work to repave a four kilometre section of Highway 15 will also take place during the week of July 3. At times, this work will be underway 24 hours a day to get the work completed as quickly as possible and minimize impact on traffic. Lane closures will be required at various stages of construction.
 
Work on this project is expected to be completed by late summer 2017.
