The 101 Avenue Corridor Study established a vision for the future of 101 Avenue identifying options for land use changes, street design and community programming, and recommending specific actions to realize the area's potential.

Next Steps

The 101 Avenue Corridor Study was completed in 2018, allowing the project to prepare interim street improvements for pedestrians and create concept and preliminary engineering designs based on findings from the study.

City Council asked for more information on what implications prioritizing these interim improvements may have on the existing operating budget at the Urban Planning Committee meeting on November 13, 2018. An update will be shared at the next committee meeting on March 19, 2019.

The improvements will begin later in 2019. We will work with the 101 Avenue communities to share information and invite input that supports the evolution of 101 Avenue.


The 101 Avenue Corridor Study was presented to Council's Urban Planning Committee on June 5, 2018.

At the meeting Councillors passed a motion to direct administration to:

Bring forward a capital profile for consideration to advance the planning and design, in accordance with Capital Governance Policy C591, as part of the 2019-2022 Capital Budget, and include the incremental costs above the arterial renewal investments related to the proposed infrastructure improvements included in the 101 Avenue Planning Study.

Provide a report on opportunities to advance short-term actions to move the vision forward prioritizing active transportation including how the 101 Avenue Corridor could become a "main street" as part of the Complete Streets Policy.

City staff will share proposed actions at the Fun on 101 Ave community event. The proposed actions will be presented to Council’s Urban Planning Committee in November as well as information on the capital profile and main streets.

Improving Active Transportation

Administration is exploring the feasibility of actions that improve active transportation. The feasibility of potential actions was assessed using the following criteria:

  • Aligns with the vision and recommendations of the Corridor Study

  • Be implementable within the short term (1 to 2 years)

  • Provides a functional improvement for active modes

  • Funding for implementation is available within existing budgets

  • Community led initiatives can reasonably be fundraised for by the community

Possible actions could include:

  • Repurposing city owned right of way to increase space on sidewalks to better buffer pedestrians

  • Updating placement of bus stop amenities

  • Adding curb ramps to provide barrier free access

  • Adding curb extensions to improve pedestrian crossings

  • Updating or replacing pedestrian crossing signage

  • Repainting existing marked crossings and assessing locations for new marked crossings

  • Testing the closure of one-way (westbound) vehicle access to 101 Avenue from 50 Street

  • Testing the closure of excess driveway accesses that cross sidewalks

  • Supporting community led initiatives to sponsoring street furniture/beautification, or pop up bike lanes for community led special events
