About the Project
The extent of this project is to construct approximately 400m of urban arterial roadway in the ultimate alignment from 23 Avenue south to the new 18 Avenue, while providing access to the existing 199 Street SW near this location.
This project is to provide access and growth to the new development of Stillwater to the south and west of 23 Avenue and 199 Street SW while maintaining the vital link to the residences to the south of this area.
The construction of the west half of this roadway in 2017 is part of the developers contribution to the arterial roadways in the area and will see the current roadway upgraded to the City of Edmonton Urban Arterial Standard, including wider lanes and curb and gutter.
One of the interesting challenges to this project is the depth of the underground which is over 10m deep near the current 199 Street SW right of way. Due to this depth of the underground construction, it is not practical or safe to maintain 199 Street SW in the current alignment during construction. A temporary gravel detour road will be in place to safely detour traffic around the construction during the duration of the project.
