This project will re-establish Jasper Avenue, from 92 Street to 109 Street, as an Edmonton main street. Completion is anticipated in 2022.

Construction has started on 100 Street northbound from McDougall Hill to 101A Avenue, reducing it to 2 lanes.

Jasper Avenue from 97 Street to 100 Street will be reduced to 1 lane in each direction. The south sidewalk will be closed but local business access will be maintained. Please detour using 104 Avenue or 107 Avenue.

This work will continue through fall 2020.

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.

Pre-construction Information

The Project

Jasper Avenue New Vision is a major catalyst project identified in the Capital City Downtown Plan (12MB). This plan calls for Jasper Avenue to feature a high quality pedestrian experience, including:

  • A narrowed roadway
  • Wider sidewalks
  • Tree planting
  • High quality public realm improvements and landscaping
  • Refined streetscape elements
  • Increased design standards for private development

Jasper Avenue New Vision will help achieve City Council’s commitment to transform Edmonton’s urban form and improve livability in the heart of the city. The project area extends along Jasper Avenue from 92 Street to 109 Street.

Progress

Jasper Avenue New Vision was approved in 2011 and Phase 1 of construction took place between 100 Street and 102 Street in 2013.

Working from this vision, with consideration for the City’s Main Streets Guideline (2016), the City is now undertaking concept planning for the avenue from 92 Street to 96 Street and from 102 Street to 109 Street.

Concept and preliminary design is being conducted for 96 Street to 100 Street, with construction of these 4 blocks being coordinated with other construction work in the area.

Background

Jasper Avenue, from 92 Street to 109 Street, is an Edmonton main street. With downtown development on the rise, now is the time for transformation.

In 2011, the City published a report, Toward a New Vision for Jasper Avenue (30MB), which contained an inspiring and compelling new vision for Jasper Avenue’s streetscape, as well as a range of important city-building initiatives that will surround it.

The underlying principle of this report is that the revitalization of Jasper Avenue’s streetscape can serve as a catalyst for private sector reinvestment, continued renewal, and positive change throughout the corridor.
