The City of Edmonton is currently building a world-class funicular next to the Shaw Conference Centre that will provide mechanized access to North America’s largest urban parkland. Due to the large scale of this project, there will be specific days and times (see below) that the city restricts access to Grierson Hill Road, the main access point to our loading dock, and the Louise McKinney parking lot.
All general traffic will be blocked northbound and southbound on Grierson Hill. Event attendees and exhibitors can still access the Louise McKinney parking lot or the Shaw Conference Centre loading dock by informing the traffic guard at 95a street and Grierson Hill. Additional parking lots nearby can be viewed here.
Grierson Hill Traffic Restriction
Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 7 p.m. to Monday, May 15 at 6 a.m.
Vehicle, pedestrian, and cyclist detours will be in place to accommodate this work.
Northbound traffic on the Low Level Bridge, eastbound traffic on Rossdale Road/100 Street, and westbound traffic on 101 Avenue will detour north to Jasper Avenue. Access to Louise McKinney Park and the Shaw Conference Centre will be maintained from the top of Grierson Hill Road.
Pedestrian and cyclist access to north side trails will be limited between the Low Level Bridge and Dawson Bridge. Closure signs will be in place to let trail users know about the closures. Users are advised to go through downtown to get around the closure. Pedestrians may take ETS downtown from stop #1190 north of the Low Level Bridge.
Full detour maps are available here.
