The vision for a green and walkable downtown includes improvements to the downtown streetscape that will make downtown more accessible, easier to navigate and more pleasant for pedestrians.
By improving the streetscapes, more people will use the streets for walking and cycling. The Downtown will be a more attractive and desirable place for people of all ages
The first of these phases will include streetscape upgrades to 104 Avenue and 103A Avenue between 97 Street and 105 Street.
The result will be an interesting and attractive “grand boulevard” linking the Quarters, the Royal Alberta Museum, the Civic Precinct, the Arena and Entertainment District, the 104 Street Promenade, and MacEwan University.
Future phases will be determined by Council and may include:
- Streetscape upgrades to key streets throughout downtown.
- An improved wayfinding system within downtown Edmonton. This system will include not only street-level signage for pedestrians, but also potentially web and mobile apps and wayfinding tools.
