There will be fewer traffic delays along one of Edmonton’s busiest roads starting Thursday.
Two lanes of Calgary Trail and Allendale Road eastbound were reopened in the morning.
The intersection was closed at the beginning of August when city crews discovered a void — or large cavity — under the surface of Allendale Road.
The road, as well as part of Calgary Trail, were shut down as a safety precaution.
After investigating further, the city found out the void was so deep, 120 trucks’ worth of concrete were needed to fill it.
Work on the area will continue for a few months.
Watch: Traffic could soon be flowing better along a part of Calgary Trail where crews found a large void under the road last week. Albert Delitala has the latest.
