The 103 Avenue Streetscape Project focuses on enhancing the area between 100 Street and 101 Street.

Project Update - August 2020

The concept plan for the 103 Avenue Streetscape is ready for review.

Concept Plan

During public and stakeholder engagement, the City learned there are 4 key items important to those who live, work, and travel on 103 Avenue.

Green Space

Improving the streetscape along 103 Avenue through landscaping, amenities, and areas to linger will create a green and walkable street and create a more attractive and desirable place for people of all ages and abilities.

Lighting

The street is dark, particularly in the winter months. There was a desire for increased lighting to improve safety.

Wind

103 Avenue acts as a wind tunnel that discourages people from enjoying the street. While it is not possible to eliminate the wind, there may be features that can lessen its impact.

Pedestrians

Although the street will be open to traffic, there is a need to emphasize the pedestrian experience through wider sidewalks, narrower travel lanes, reduced on street parking, increased landscaping and more seating areas.

About the Project

103 Avenue is a natural connection that links people to the Ice District, the Civic Precinct, including the Royal Alberta Museum, Winspear Centre, City Hall, Stanley A. Milner Public Library, as well as office towers, restaurants, hotels and the Valley Line-South LRT. 103 Avenue also connects hundreds of Edmontonians, including seniors, to their homes.

The 103 Avenue Streetscape is a Green and Walkable project. These projects make areas more attractive to live and invest in, bringing more diversity, vibrancy, and energy to downtown Edmonton. This is a component of the Capital City Downtown Plan that calls for improvements to downtown roadways and streetscapes that support safe and comfortable pedestrian movement, sidewalk vibrancy, quality urban design, and more trees and greenery.
