In line with the City’s lifecycle management process,144 Avenue roadway repaving, between 66 Street and 82 Street, is tentatively scheduled for 2022.

Project Update - May 2020

Public feedback, as well as additional studies of the road and other City studies, have provided more information for the 144 Avenue design. From this, it has been decided that the entire corridor, from 50 Street to 97 Street, would best be reconstructed at the same time to provide a safe continuous treatment for the corridor (road and sidewalks/paths). The current approved budget and scope, however, does not cover this cost.

Based on this, 144 Avenue between 66 Street and 82 Street will be repaved only, a different approach than originally anticipated and presented.

The concept planning study will continue once there is funding for a full reconstruction with possible upgrades of the entire corridor from 50 Street to 97 Street.

About the Project

In line with the City’s lifecycle management process, 144 Avenue roadway repaving, between 66 Street and 82 Street, is tentatively scheduled for 2022.

In 2018, 144 Avenue between 66 Street and 82 Street was identified for renewal so the City initiated a Concept Planning Study for 144 Avenue, between 50 Street and 97 Street, to support the design of a safe and welcoming street for all users. It was to consider traffic and pedestrian safety, access management, parking, and accommodation for cars, transit, bikes and pedestrians. The Concept Plan has been put on hold until the entire corridor between 50 Street and 97 Street requires a full reconstruction and funding is in place.

Project History

Project Update - October 2019

What has happened so far?

  • The City met with 17 stakeholder groups to discuss their values and vision for 144 Avenue between 50 Street and 97 Street.  

  • A draft set of vision and values were developed from the information collected at these meetings. The vision and values were shared with the public on June 19, 2019 to gather feedback on this information and on potential elements that could be included in the 144 Avenue Concept Planning Study.

  • A What We Heard Report was prepared from the June 2019 event. In summary, we heard a desire for consistent speeds along the corridor, along with a general lack of desire for major changes to the roadway. In addition, there was a general theme from stakeholders and the public showing a lack of support for the installation of bike lanes along 144 Avenue.

What's next?

There are many City studies being undertaken that will contribute to a successful 144 Avenue Concept Planning Study. These include the Bus Network Redesign, Edmonton Bike Plan and The City Plan

These studies are anticipated to be completed in late 2019 or early 2020. Once completed, they will help guide the design of the 144 Avenue corridor and provide information requested by the public in June.

Public Engagement - June 2019

The project team held a public event on June 19, 2019 to discuss the future of 144 Avenue, between 50 Street and 97 Street. Feedback and ideas collected will be used to develop the look and feel for the road such as parking, landscape, crosswalks, curbs and more.

Prior to this event, the project team met with stakeholder groups in the community to kick off the development of the vision and values for this project. Attendees had the opportunity to provide feedback on a draft Vision Statement and values list, and help establish priorities moving forward.
