The concrete is coming.

Drivers may experience some traffic disruption as pre-cast concrete structures for the downtown parkade are delivered over the next 10 to 12 weeks.

The three-storey parkade above the transit terminal at 49th Avenue will have 400 stalls and will allow for expanded transit office space and kiosk retail opportunities in the northwest corner.

The concrete is coming from Edmonton and Calgary and trucks will travel from 67th Street, down the north hill into the downtown.

Five trucks made the first concrete delivery on Thursday.

Darin Sceviour, project manager with the city, said the trucks barely interrupted the traffic flow.

“I’ve seen more disturbance when you get food deliveries with trucks that back up,” Sceviour said.

There will be 211 concrete decking structures delivered, 18 metres long, weighing 27,000 kg. Each column weighs 18,000 kg.

Sceviour said expected to be complete in the spring.
