Project Update - June 2022
The project is moving into the revitalization of westbound Jasper Avenue from 97 Street to 100 Street, 97 Street from Jasper Avenue to 102 Avenue, Thornton Court south of Jasper Avenue and a section 99 Street from Jasper Avenue north towards Shoctor Alley. Work to complete Phase 2 of construction was substantially completed in 2021.
The next phase of construction will focus on Thornton Court, south of Jasper Avenue, throughout 2022.
This work will require various closures and detours throughout the project area. South of Jasper Avenue, Thornton Court will see phased, single-lane closures to allow for work in this area. Access to the Canada Place Parkade, as well 101A Avenue will be maintained. 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.
