Groat Road / River Valley Road Construction
[See also: City of Edmonton Project Update]
Travel to and from Hawrelak Park may be complicated by ongoing construction, for vehicles coming from the north side of the river.
Groat Road Detour
Starting December 2, 2018, Routes 128 and 130, as well as School Specials 725 and 757 will detour away from Groat Road until the completion of the Bridge and Road Renewal project in summer 2020. If you use these routes, please plan ahead. During this time, these routes will suspend service to University Transit Centre and will be redirected to serve Government Centre Transit Centre. This route will include stops near Corona and Grandin/Government Centre LRT stations.
Due to the above, transit users are recommended to travel to University station to connect with the free shuttle.
ETS Family/Day Pass: An ETS Family/Day Pass provides unlimited daily travel for up to five people (maximum two adults) to ride city transit all day for only $10.00 (fare effective Feb 1, 2020); the pass is transferable and can be used on any day of the week. Day passes can be purchased through ETS sales outlets, ETS Online Store or from Fare Vending Machines.
