127 Street Reconstruction - 118 Avenue to Yellowhead Trail
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.
Construction Notice - April 22, 2016
Construction on 127 Street will take one construction season between May and October. See map below to see the construction staging of this project.
Stage One of construction started on Sunday, May 1:
- Both southbound lanes are closed and northbound traffic is reduced to one lane for the next three months
- Detour using 121 Street or St. Albert Trail
- All bus stops on 127 Street are closed until October 2016. See www.takeETS.com for detour information and schedules
- Free shuttle (route 398) through Sherbrooke and Prince Charles started running April 24
Please Note: Traffic barriers across 124 Street at 123 Avenue will remain in place as part of the Prince Charles Community Traffic Management Plan. Please detour through St. Albert Trail, 121 Street, 142 Street, 149 Street and 97 Street. The implications of reinstating 124 Street as a detour, even temporarily, are significant for Prince Charles as it would see a return of 4,000-6,000 vehicles per day, as well as additional detour traffic adjacent to the neighbourhood park and residential properties during the summer months when more people are out and about. Street signs are in place to direct parents to the three schools in the area during construction.
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.
