Project Update - January 2019
The recommended design shared at the October 30, 2018 public event was presented and approved by City Council's Urban Planning Committee in November 2018.
In December 2018, City Council approved the construction budget for 105 Avenue from 109 Street -116 Street as a part of the 2019-2022 budget deliberations. Utility relocation for this area is anticipated to begin in 2019 with roadway construction anticipated to start in 2021.
105 Avenue is emerging as a key corridor in the revitalization of the Downtown north edge.
In 2016, the City constructed the Phase 1 streetscape improvements from 116 Street to 119 Street, to help make 105 Avenue more accessible and pedestrian friendly. This construction is based on the 2013 preliminary design focused on 105 Avenue between 109 Street and 119 Street.
In 2017, the City refreshed the 2013 preliminary design with an emphasis on protected bike lanes. Two options for protected bike lanes were shown at the drop-in public meeting February 13, 2018. These options were:
- Two-way protected bike lane with one-way vehicle traffic and a parking lane
- One-way protected bike lane with two-way vehicle traffic
