Bridges Of Leduc

Leduc's 2A Southbound overpass has resumed construction

Leduc Hwy 2A Overpass Work Continues

After nearly a year delay work began last week on the 2A southbound bridge and the final portion of the 519-flyover bridge. The 2A exit bridge has been closed since the spring of 2014 when a dump truck hit it with enough force to compromise the bridge’s integrity. Of the two bridges it is expected that 519 will be completed in a few weeks while the 2A southbound exit should be completed by the end of July.

The work on the 2A exit will cause some delays for those traveling the Highway 2 (QE II) as temporary lane closures and speed reductions will occur on from 8 p.m. to 10 a.m.

One full lane will remain open except when a full closure is required. There will be several full closures on weekends from Saturday at 8 p.m. to Sunday at 10 a.m. Electronic signage is being used to note closures along Highway 2.

Alberta Transportation has stated on selected weekends there will be a need for a complete closure of southbound traffic on Highway 2, During those times, motorists will be detoured to Millet on Highway 2A. At Millet, the traffic will be detoured back to Highway 2 using Highway 616. Northbound lanes will remain open to traffic with speed and width reductions in the construction zone.

Meanwhile Exit 519, the north access to Leduc, was closed on May 4. Temporary lane closures and speed reductions will occur on Highway 2 (QE II) from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Work on Exit 519 is expected to be completed by June 15th.
