127 Street Reconstruction - 118 Avenue to Yellowhead Trail
Construction Update - June 2016
The following work has been completed since work began in April:
- Removal of the trees from the median on the west side of 127 Street from Yellowhead Trail to 118 Avenue
- Removal of the road on the south side of Yellowhead Trail, as well as on the west side of 127 Street from Yellowhead Trail to 121 Avenue
- Installation of new manholes on the west side of 127 Street between Yellowhead Trail and 122 Avenue
Stage 1 should be completed by the end of July, at which time traffic will switch to the completed west side, with one lane in each direction. Stage 2 will begin with concrete/pavement removals on the east side of 127 Street.
Transit Service Update
The temporary shuttle service has moved to 120 Avenue while the 122 Avenue intersection is under construction. The shuttle service should return to 122 Avenue by early July.
Construction Safety for Kids
In late May the City distributed construction safety booklets to two schools in the Prince Charles neighbourhood. The booklets contain safety tips and activities to help students learn to stay safe around nearby reconstruction on 127 Street.
About the Project
127 Street from 118 Avenue to Yellowhead Trail serves as a major commuter corridor linking the downtown area to residential and commercial developments north of Yellowhead Trail.
City staff consulted with area residents in 2014 and early 2015 and road reconstruction began in spring 2016.
