About the Project
107 Avenue from 109 Street to 130 Street is a narrow 4-lane arterial road, a 24-hour truck route and a significant transit corridor. It runs through a busy commercial district and is adjacent to high density residential communities.
Through the 2013 public engagement process, citizens voiced their concerns regarding:
- On-street parking
- Pedestrian crossings
- The walkability and bikeability of the community
- Transit accommodation
- Traffic flow and congestion
- Neighbourhood parking
Construction will be completed. The area will be fully open for use in its new form.
Construction will start in 2021, beginning with roadway network changes off Yellowhead Trail.
2020: Detailed Design
Refine the preliminary design and prepare plans and specifications that will guide construction and ensure that changes are built to standards.
2020: Preliminary Design
Develop the concept plan in more detail, determine issues and constraints and how those can be managed. Prepare schedule and budget.
Developing a plan for what will be built and what it will look like including changes to the broader roadway network.
The Yellowhead Strategic Plan directed the closure of access to and over Yellowhead Trail at 66 Street.
Where We Are Today
The 109 Street to 130 Street section of 107 Avenue is on hold pending further analysis and evaluation of on-street parking issues along the corridor and in surrounding neighbourhoods.
To date, no funding has been made available for the upgrades to 107 Avenue, so there is no timeline for construction.
