Project Update - November 2023
The City uses a combination of policy and program information, technical requirements, public engagement feedback and funding when developing a design for the renewal of 95 Avenue, between 163 Street and 170 Street.
Design Highlights Include:
- Roadway reconstruction, including replacing sidewalks, curbs and lighting.
- A shared pathway along the south side of 95 Avenue. The service roads will be retained and reconstructed.
- Widened sidewalks along the northside of 95 Avenue.
- Maintaining 2 lanes of travel in each direction on 95 Avenue, with the removal of left-turning lanes at 165 Street. The left turn movements can still be made using the through lane.
For details on the feedback received and how it was considered for the design, view the 95 Avenue Information Sheet.
Options for replacement landscaping, including trees and/or shrubs are under review.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025. More information regarding construction will be provided closer to the start of the work. A decision has been made to defer work from 182 Street to 189 Street. This section will be considered as part of the 2026-2030 budget cycle.

About the Project
95 Avenue from 163 Street to 182 Street will undergo renewal. Renewal projects rehabilitate roads, replace street lights, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and add missing sidewalk links, where possible. The project is also considering other opportunities that improve how people walk, bike, roll, drive and gather.
The City makes decisions using a combination of policy and program information, public and stakeholder engagement input, technical requirements and available funding. This process helps to ensure the decisions we make are fiscally responsible, align with best practices, consider the existing public and private infrastructure, land uses and safety of activities along the roadway, and result in the best outcomes for our city.
A decision has been made to defer work from 182 Street to 189 Street. This section will be considered as part of the 2026-2030 budget cycle.
We acknowledge the previously removed painted bike lanes on 95 Avenue did not meet expectations of the public, and the project team is making every effort to ensure the new design is appropriate and suitable, while allowing for the safe accommodation of all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles. 95 Avenue is identified as a district connector as part of the City of Edmonton’s Bike Plan, as well as a missing link in Edmonton’s cycling infrastructure. In alignment with this plan, the design will include a new shared pathway along the corridor. This shared pathway is meant for all active users, including pedestrians, wheelchair users, cyclists or other people strolling, rolling or walking.
