Temporary Outdoor Patios, Sidewalk Cafes & Retail Space

Patios, sidewalk cafes and outdoor retail rules have changed to make it easier to expand safely. 

New Guidelines and Sign Up

In support of the recovery efforts of the Old Strathcona Business Association, we're adjusting more roads to provide additional space for people to enjoy restaurant patios and retail stores, while maintaining the required physical distance from others.

Updated May 27, 2020

As these streets are adjusted, information will be updated here.

The Temporary Outdoor Patio and Retail Expansion will be implemented at the following locations on May 28:

Whyte Avenue

Whyte Avenue (82 Avenue) north side, from Gateway Boulevard to 105 Street - parking lane and right travel lane closure

102 Street

102 Street from Whyte Avenue to the alley north of 81 Avenue - conversion of street to one-way southbound for vehicles

Vehicle for Hire Services

On May 25, the City issued a new Emergency Order, which repealed the April 1 Order that detailed Vehicle for Hire requirements in Edmonton.

Updated May 26, 2020

The original Order was repealed by the City after the Government of Alberta issued new guidance for Taxis, Limos and Rideshares on May 24. This new provincial guidance covers driver hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, distancing, passengers, and more.
