Based on customer and Operator feedback, ETS is adjusting downtown detours for bus routes 60, 61, 62, 63, 66, 68, 69, 72 and 90. At the start of service on Monday, June 17, these routes will detour onto 97 Street between Jasper Avenue and 104 Avenue. 

Bus routes 7, 8, 15, 52, 70, 81, 82, 85, 87, 112, 512, 856 and 965 will continue to detour onto 101 Street between Jasper Avenue and 104 Avenue.
ETS detours are due to the closure of 100 Street at 102 Avenue to accommodate the construction of Valley Line LRT tracks across the intersection.

The detours will last until approximately July 20.  Updated orange and white detour notices will be installed on posts next to closed bus stops and new temporary stops in advance of the detours. ETS staff will be at bus stops on 100 and 97 Streets next week to assist passengers in finding their new temporary stops.

ETS, in cooperation with Parking Services, has already implemented additional changes to improve traffic flow in downtown along Jasper Avenue between 100 and 101 Streets. The installation of temporary “no stopping” signage on Jasper Avenue from 100 to 101 Streets and at 101 Street and 104 Avenue will assist with ETS operations. ETS relocated bus stop #1262 on Jasper Avenue further west to 101 Street at Jasper Avenue to provide more room for buses to stop.

ETS customers may experience service delays as buses navigate construction sites and manage roadways with increased traffic. Transit riders are encouraged to plan their trips in advance, double check their route schedules and use real-time tools.

From the Edmonton Police Service

Earlier this year on January 28, 2019, at approximately 9:20 p.m., police responded to a residence in the area of 117 Avenue and 101 Street on the report of a discharged firearm. It was reported that five masked individuals approached a residence and attempted to force their way inside. 

Moments later, a firearm was discharged through the front door of the residence. Fortunately, no one was struck or injured. The suspects then fled the area in an unknown vehicle. 

Investigators are releasing video of the incident in hopes of identifying all suspects involved. Police also believe this was a targeted incident. 

Anyone with information regarding the identities of the suspects in the video is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.

Edmonton – On June 18 at approximately 7 p.m., the Edmonton International Airport Detachment responded to a call for service in relation to a male in distress in the airport parkade.

During the course of the investigation, it was revealed that the 41-year-old male from Edmonton was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant. He was taken into RCMP custody and transported to the airport detachment. While in custody, the male became extremely agitated and the responding members were required to restrain him and take him through the airport to a police vehicle for transport to an Edmonton hospital.

During transport, an incident arose that required RCMP to stop roadside to subdue the male, resulting in a Conducted Energy Weapon being deployed. Edmonton Police Service responded to assist, along with EMS. Once the situation was under control, members were able to continue transport the hospital.

The investigation into this incident continues by both the RCMP and Alberta Serious Incident Response Team. No further information will be made available by RCMP.
