Project Update - Fall 2023
The reconstruction and rehabilitation of Gateway Boulevard are now complete. The project unfolded in 2 phases, beginning with the rehabilitation of University Avenue to 80 Avenue in the summer of 2022. The second phase involved the reconstruction of 80 Avenue to 82 (Whyte) Avenue, beginning in the spring of 2023. The road fully reopened in the fall of 2023.
Rehabilitation work focused on replacing the roadway using a 'like-with-like' approach, addressing some curb and gutter issues, and performing necessary sidewalk repairs.
The reconstruction phase included the removal and rebuilding of both the roadway and sidewalks. Changes also incorporated improved traffic signalling, along with new landscaping elements like trees and streetlights.
This project renews this important Boulevard, contributing to the improvement of the surrounding areas and enhancing connectivity to the historic Old Strathcona district.
