Traffic Detour

NEW: February 3 - 19

East entrance is currently inaccessible due to 102 Avenue closure. Please use west entrance.

During bridge construction, it's business as usual for the Royal Alberta Museum! We do, however, recommend allowing extra travel time.

The 102 Avenue bridge, near 124 Street, over Groat Road, is now completely closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic until the fall of 2015. It will be replaced with a new bridge.

Detour routes are indicated with way-finding signage.

For more information on the bridge replacement project, go to the City of Edmonton website or phone 311.
