Preliminary Plan Event - October 29, 2018

The City of Edmonton hosted an event 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

The preliminary plans were based on the 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.

About the Program

Alberta Avenue has been chosen for reconstruction beginning in spring 2019.  The reconstruction in Alberta Avenue is expected to be a 4 year renewal with anticipated completion in 2022.

Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of streetlights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction. It also includes the opportunity for two local improvements, sidewalk renewal and decorative streetlights.

A series of public events will be scheduled which will give residents the opportunity to view the design plans and discuss details with the project team.

Project History

Draft Concepts Public Event - June 2018

On June 21, residents and stakeholders were invited to share their input to help refine the designs of the draft concepts for new infrastructure in Alberta Avenue.  The designs  included bike lanes, shared use paths, ways to slow traffic and park features. The focus was on which concepts should be prioritized in support of the vision, core values and community needs for the neighbourhood, as identified at previous engagement events.

Project Vision Confirmation and Community Options - April 2018

On April 26, the City held an event as a follow-up to the February Community Walk and Ideas Workshop. The drop-in event was an opportunity for attendees to confirm the community vision, identify core values and review and provide input on potential design options for new infrastructure in your neighbourhood.
