Starting Sunday, December 2— Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) will be detouring bus routes on Groat Road until the Groat Road Bridge and Road Renewal Project is completed in summer 2020. Bus detours around Groat Road are a precautionary measure to ensure reliable bus service and a safe worksite. It will also comply with the truck ban implemented for the construction zone.
Instead of using Groat Road to service University Transit Centre, Routes 128 and 130, as well as School Specials 725 and 757, will detour to Government Centre Transit Centre. This detour will require temporary closures of bus stops along Groat Road, Victoria Park Road, 87 Avenue west of the University of Alberta, as well as two southbound bus stops on 116 Street between Jasper Avenue and 100 Avenue. Temporary onsite signage at affected bus stops will help communicate these upcoming changes. New bus stops will be located near Corona and Grandin/Government Centre LRT stations.
ETS advises anyone affected by these changes to check the updated schedule on the Trip Planner at takeets.com. (photo credit–Moovit)
