Project Update - October 2023
The concept plan for the 81 Avenue Reconstruction project has been finalized. Its development was guided by technical requirements, stakeholder feedback and City plans and policies.
Two rounds of engagement were held with property owners, businesses and the Old Strathcona Business Association. The City integrated stakeholder feedback into the concept plan where possible. The plan includes improvements to the public realm and pedestrian experience through sidewalk widening, streetlight replacement and the addition of street furniture and landscaping.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025; the City will work closely with property owners and businesses to mitigate impacts during construction.
