About the Project

53 Avenue, between Whitemud Drive and Riverbend Road, has been identified for road rehabilitation due to the poor condition of the pavement and sidewalks. The project includes renewal of the roadway base, roadway paving and selective renewal of curbs, gutters, sidewalks and street lights as required to enhance safety and efficiency. Other improvements may also include the addition of missing sidewalk and shared-use-path links to help achieve current City plans and policies.
