Traffic accommodation connections to the South East Ring Road are also on our construction agenda this year. A two-lane roadway from 68 Street S.E., a four-lane roadway from 68 Street S.E. to 57 Street S.E. and a four-lane bridge over Forest Lawn Creek which is between 57 Street S.E. and 68 Street S.E. are all in the scope of work.
