The Latta Bridge, located along Jasper Avenue, northeast of 91 Street and southwest of 90 Street, will be replaced.
Project Update - February 2023
Access to 91 Street from Jasper Avenue will be restricted as work progresses. Local residential traffic can access the alleyway from 90 Street until project completion. This closure will begin in mid-February.
Demolition of the original structure began in August 2022. Work on the bridge replacement and roadway improvements is underway. Since construction began, the project team has implemented temporary speed bumps along 105A Avenue and 106 Avenue, provided signage for businesses in the area, and installed new speed and hidden driveway signage in the alleyway. The project team has also worked with Edmonton Police Service and St. Teresa School, along with residents to address concerns about short-cutting and speed in the project area.
Latta Bridge Replacement requires a full road closure on Jasper Avenue from 90 Street to 91 Street. This will require that motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and transit users take other routes.

Latta Bridge was originally constructed in 1911 and currently serves as an arterial roadway with 4 lanes of traffic. Latta Bridge is located along Jasper Avenue, northeast of 91 Street and southwest of 90 Street.
The bridge crosses Latta Ravine, the site of a maintenance access trail, which provides further access to Dawson Park and the river valley.
A Condition Assessment, Load Evaluation and Management Strategy Report was completed in December 2019 and recommended full replacement of the bridge.
