It’s been a long time coming for drivers on the city’s northeast side.
The final six kilometres of the Anthony Henday is now complete, making for 80 kilometres in all.
Ring Road Project Manager Bill Van deer Meer tells Global News, they might still need to make some adjustments to the traffic signals on the final section, depending on the number of left turns and through movements.
“We’ll have all the traffic signals operating at those interchanges,” explains Van deer Meer. “Everything will be running. We’re putting it to kind of our best guess of traffic movements and then we’ll tweak it if we have to.”
The speed limit will remain at 100 km/h on the Henday, but it will be much slower, of course, in any remaining construction zones.
The opening ceremony begins at 11 am Saturday with the final stretch of ring-road open to traffic a few hours after that. (km/td)
