About the Project
The McCauley Revitalization Strategy was approved by City Council in 2011 with a commitment to invest $10.5 million into the McCauley area. In 2012 work began on a Focused Urban Design Plan prepared in consultation with the community in 2012-13.
Roadway reconstruction and streetscaping began in spring 2015 along 106 Avenue from 97 Street to 101 Street and 107A Avenue from 95 Street to 97 Street and was completed in fall 2016.

- Installation of new sidewalk, curb and gutter
- Upgrading of existing drainage infrastructure
- Upgrading with decorative LED streetlights
Public realm improvements included:
- Widened and aesthetically enhanced sidewalks with streetscape furniture
- New tree pits and landscaping
- Decorative roadway and pedestrian street lighting
- Retaining on-street parallel parking
- Construction of a plaza area between 95 Street and 96 Street
