The 101 Avenue Vision and Corridor Study project team has involved the local community with a range of public engagement activities that have contributed to the final study.

Share Your Voice

Next Steps

Thank you to everyone who attended the October 10, 2019 drop-in engagement session to learn more about the 101 Avenue East Entrance Redirection Test and provided their feedback at the event or online. The input combined with the traffic data collected has been summarized in the 101 Avenue East Entrance Traffic Redirection Test: What We Heard and Observed Report. This information will help inform the next phase of the project.

The month long test in fall 2019 redirected westbound traffic, west of 50 Street, from 101 Avenue to Terrace Road. The test responded to concerns shared by the public during the 101 Avenue Corridor Study about short-cutting and large truck traffic.

The changed access and permanent westbound closure is recommended to support the long term vision for 101 Avenue by reducing short-cutting, unnecessary traffic and contributing to a better pedestrian experience along 101 Avenue. It will align with Council's Vision Zero and ConnectEdmonton strategic goals.

Previous Public Engagement

Pop-Up Public Engagement

The pop up event at Fun on 101 on September 30, 2018  was an opportunity for the project team to share the proposed short term actions to improve active transportation on 101 Avenue.

The goal was to share information and gather and review public input on priorities and considerations for implementation. Feedback was collected via a survey available at the event and online. The feedback received will be used throughout the implementation process. A summary of the feedback is available in the What We Heard report.

Fun on 101 was hosted by the Forest/Terrace Heights and Fulton Place Community Leagues and the Greater Hardisty Community Sustainability Coalition. Thank you to everyone who visited our booth and to everyone who took the time to complete the survey!

    • Is there anything missing?

    • Will the ideas presented help realize my hopes for 101 Avenue?
    • Does the concept achieve the community vision for 101 Avenue?

Display Boards

The boards which were on display seeking feedback on the draft vision and concept options, including the feedback from participants.

Where Participants Live, Work and Go

We asked everyone who attended to participate in a mapping activity. At the sign-in table participants placed stickers on a map showing where they lived and where they worked, and later at the transit station people were asked to identify where their local destinations.

This map brings all that information together:

  • Blue shows where participants live
  • Yellow shows where participants work
  • Red shows where participants are going (destinations)

Pop-Up Public Engagement

We had a series of pop-up events throughout the summer. Our staff members set up shop around the community, at public spaces, shops, and events. We chatted with a range of people about the possibilities for 101 Avenue.

Feedback Summary

The feedback we heard at the pop-up events was shared, along with the Workshop 1 feedback, at our Open House on September 29.
