Grandview Heights neighbourhood renewal started in summer 2020 with completion expected for 2021.

Project Update - December 2020

Neighbourhood renewal work is complete for 2020 in Grandview Heights! The 2020 Grandview Heights construction season began in June and was the first year of the 2-year renewal for this neighbourhood. 

In June, work began with the relocation and upgrading of drainage structures. In July, August and September, the renewal of concrete structures (including sidewalks and curbs) in the areas planned for 2020 was completed. In September and October, all planned road reconstruction and paving was completed. The planned 2020 project scope including drainage, road and concrete work was successfully completed on time and on budget. This included the placement of all sod and the new shared-use path on 62 Avenue and Grandview Drive. Street lights will be swapped out on pedestals in the coming months.

Neighbourhood renewal work will resume in Grandview Heights in May 2021, exact dates depend on the weather. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences.

Project History

Construction Update - August 2020

The 2020 Grandview Heights construction season began in June. This is the first year of the 2-year neighbourhood renewal for this neighbourhood. In June, work began with the relocation and upgrading of drainage structures throughout the neighbourhood.

In July, the renewal of concrete structures including sidewalks and curbs started at Grandview Drive and 125 Street. Twenty per cent of the concrete work and 90% of the drainage work planned for 2020 were completed.

This month, it is anticipated that all of the drainage work will be completed, about half of the concrete work will be installed and excavation work will be underway for the new shared-use path on 62 Avenue and Grandview Drive.

Construction Update - Spring 2020

Grandview Heights will start construction in July 2020. It is a planned 2-year renewal with an anticipated completion in 2021. For a breakdown of how construction is planned year-by-year, see the Construction Map.

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