Norwood Boulevard Study graphic

Norwood Boulevard (111 and 112 Avenues) has the potential to be an even more vibrant destination that serves the diverse needs of our community – as a gathering place, a commuter route and a place where people work, shop, learn and play.

In recognition of the importance of the diverse needs of all of those who use Norwood Boulevard, the City of Edmonton is undergoing a study and design process to recreate this corridor.

Study Objectives

This work will follow the City’s Main Street Guidelines, along with public input, to develop a new vision for Norwood Boulevard between 109 Street and 82 Street (see study area map 19MB).

The study will focus on:

  • Updating current land use policies
  • Improving transportation (particularly for pedestrians and cyclists)
  • Promoting new design policies and other changes to help create a street of exceptional quality for all people to work, live, learn and play

Study Background

On July 2, 2014, Council directed administration “to conduct a corridor study for Norwood Boulevard so that Council can consider adopting updated land use, transportation and design policy for the area.”

There is a good reason to study Norwood Boulevard. The Norwood Boulevard corridor is in need of renewal. It has never enjoyed a coherent vision for its future.

Ward, neighbourhood and plan boundaries have always divided the area and, as a result, no study has ever considered the whole corridor in a holistic manner.

Also, with the development of the new Kingsway/Royal Alex LRT Station, there exists a great opportunity to link Kingsway/Royal Alex and Stadium LRT stations with a comprehensive corridor.
