The bridge replacement project on 102 Avenue

During bridge construction, it's business as usual for the Royal Alberta Museum! We do, however, recommend allowing extra travel time.

The 102 Avenue bridge, near 124 Street, over Groat Road, is now completely closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic until the fall of 2015. It will be replaced with a new bridge.

Detour routes are indicated with way-finding signage.

Getting to the Museum by car during bridge closure

From the West – Take 102 Avenue eastbound, as usual. Expect delays.

From the North – Take 142 Street southbound to 102 Avenue and turn left and continue eastbound on 102 Avenue. Expect delays.

From the East – Take 107 Avenue and go left out of the traffic circle onto 142 Street southbound. Continue to 102 Avenue and turn left and continue eastbound on 102 Avenue. Expect delays.

From the South – Take the Whitemud westbound and exit at 149 Street. Continue northbound on 149 Street to 102 Avenue and turn right. Continue eastbound on 102 Avenue. Expect delays.

From Groat Road northbound – Exit at 107 Avenue and turn left. Continue westbound to the traffic circle, go left out of the traffic circle onto 142 Street southbound. Continue to 102 Avenue and turn left (a new traffic signal will make it easier) and continue eastbound on 102 Avenue. Expect delays.
