There will be a minor closure later this week related to ongoing construction of the new Gaetz/QEII interchange.

Taylor Drive near the QEII will be closed from 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 24 until 7 a.m. on Friday, May 25.

The closure is required to accomodate the concrete pour of the new southbound collector-distributor bridge deck, according to Alberta Transportation.

This will cause detours for traffic headed northbound and southbound on Taylor Drive. Motorists wanting to head south on Taylor Drive will be re-routed to the Highway 2/32 Street interchange then back to the Highway 2A turn-off. Motorists wanting to travel north on Taylor Drive from Highway 2A will be detoured to the Highway 2/McKenzie Rd. interchange then back north on Highway 2 to access Taylor Drive from 19 Street.

Reduced speed limits remain in effect. 

Current northbound and eastbound traffic conditions for that area can be viewed online.
