Project Update – June 2023
The reconstruction of Thornton Court, south of Jasper Avenue, was substantially completed in 2022. Intermittent road closures and detours will be required throughout the project area starting spring 2023 until fall 2023 as warranty inspections and repairs are underway. Closures will be coordinated with all affected property owners in advance and building access will be maintained at all times.
The goal of Imagine Jasper Avenue and Jasper Avenue New Vision is to restore and elevate the avenue, giving it a consistent look and feel, highlighting the downtown core and providing a safe and enhanced experience for those who walk, bike, drive or use transit. Ultimately, the changes will support area businesses and attract visitors.
Highlights of both sections of Jasper Avenue include wider sidewalks, enhanced street furniture and plantings, new street and pedestrian lighting and full roadway reconstruction.
During construction (spring to fall 2020, 2021 and 2022), traffic will be limited to 1 lane in each direction. Traffic will be restored to existing capacity on Jasper Avenue from 97 Street to 100 Street during the winter. Jasper Avenue from 109 Street to 114 Street will be restored to 5 lanes of traffic during the winter.
