Public Event: November 2019
Thank you to those who were able to join us at the community drop-in event on November 6, 2019. Attendees learned about the alley renewal program and what they can expect when the construction work begins. They also had an opportunity to share their concerns about the state of their alley, including access and drainage, and to share considerations about their backyard, driveway tie-in and alley use that should be accounted for during construction. The Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion team was also in attendance to share information about the program and the upcoming noise wall replacement.
Input will be summarized in a What We Heard report that will be shared through the project website over the winter.

About the Project
Alley renewal involves alley reconstruction and repaving, improvements to surface drainage wherever possible, and upgrading existing alley lighting to LED fixtures. It also includes the opportunity for a local improvement to add alley lighting if property owners are interested.
Delton has been chosen for alley renewal in 2019/2020. Earlier in 2019, EPCOR Water began renewing some alleys in the neighbourhood after completing their underground utility work. The City and EPCOR Water will be coordinating to reconstruct the remaining alleys that require water main renewal and those that are in poor condition in 2020.
Pruning and removals will be completed over the winter to make room for construction equipment. Construction timelines and details will be available in the spring, and a notice will be sent to residents between May and October prior to construction starting. Residents can expect their alley to be inaccessible for approximately 4 weeks during construction.
