Neighbourhood Reconstruction is scheduled for Alberta Avenue as part of the 2019-22 construction program.

Construction Update - August 2020

We are halfway through the 2020 construction season for Alberta Avenue. For a breakdown of planned projects by number in the neighborhood, see the 2020 Project Map.

In April 2020, street light construction started from 119 Avenue to 122 Avenue between 97 Street to 93 Street and 117 Avenue to 114 Avenue between 97 Street to 95 Street. The street light upgrade is on track to be energized ahead of the original schedule.

By the end of August, the remaining sidewalks, curb and gutter replacement will be completed with road construction anticipated to finish by early October.

Landscaping in the 2020 area has started recently on 93 Street and 119 Avenue and we anticipate to have over 80% of the sod placement complete prior to the end of summer season. The remaining sod placement from 2019 projects are now done with minor deficiency repair to be completed by end of August.

About the Program

Reconstruction in Alberta Avenue started in spring 2019 with completion expected for 2022. A series of public events gave residents the opportunity to view the design plans and discuss details with the project team.

Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of street lights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction.

Project History

Construction Update - Spring 2020

We are entering the second year of planned 4-year construction for Alberta Avenue (see Construction Map). For a yearly breakdown of how construction is planned, with numbered projects, see the Scope Map.

The 2019 construction season was a success with all planned construction in Projects 50, 51 and 52 completed including the roadways, sidewalks, drainage and street lighting. Landscaping was only complete up to topsoil level. From May to July, landscapers will be onsite to prepare the topsoil and finish installing the sod.

The 2020 construction seasons will include the removal and replacement of public sidewalks, curbs and gutters, as well as street lighting, and reconstruction and paving of the roads in Projects 53 and 54.

New LED street lighting upgrades will continue in Projects 53 and 54. The street light subcontractor has started new pole base drilling in April and will continue to remove old existing light poles through the summer.

Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with contact details for any concerns regarding landscaping and access.

Construction Update - Spring 2019

Construction is now underway in Alberta Avenue. The construction includes removal and replacement of street lighting, public sidewalk, curb and gutter, as well as reconstruction and paving of the road. This map of Alberta Avenue identifies the work planned for 2019. 

The April Bulletin contains important project and contact information for residents and property owners. The Prime Contractor working for the City will deliver bulletins outlining the estimated start/finish dates of each portion of the project, along with their contact information.

The City thanks residents and property owners for their patience as we make these improvements.

Project Update - February 2019

Thank you to those who attended the Alberta Avenue Neighbourhood Renewal event on Thursday February 7 to view the final designs for your neighbourhood and learn more about what to expect during the planned 4-year construction. 

The final neighbourhood designs were developed based on the feedback received throughout the public engagement process from January to October 2018, and also considered City policies, programs, and technical considerations. The final neighbourhood designs include:

  • Upgraded residential streets, including measures to slow traffic
  • Improved connections for people who walk and bike
  • Enhanced park and green spaces

Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in the Sidewalk Local Improvement decision.

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated January 21, 2019, which included information about the Sidewalk Local Improvement and a form for those who wished to petition against the sidewalk reconstruction. For property owners in Alberta Avenue, the deadline for the petition was February 20, 2019.

Preliminary Plan Event - October 2018

The City hosted an event on October 29, 2018 to share the Preliminary Plans for new infrastructure in Alberta Avenue. The Preliminary Plans include:

  • Upgraded residential streets, with measures to slow traffic
  • Improved connections for people who walk and bike
  • Enhanced park and green spaces

These were based on feedback received throughout the public engagement process, which started in January. The past input helped the project team refine the concept designs further and prioritize improvements to be completed with Neighbourhood Renewal. The designs also considered technical constraints, City policies/programs and available budget. Information about the next steps and staging for construction, beginning in 2019, were also provided.
