King Edward Park has been chosen for alley renewal in 2020 and 2021.

Project Update - December 2021

All alleys that were included as part of the King Edward Park Alley Renewal Project have now been fully reconstructed and paved as per schedule. Minor deficiency work was started in fall 2021 and will continue in spring 2022 as required in accordance with final project inspections.

Landscaping restoration was not completed in full in approximately 10 of the alleys that were reconstructed in 2021 due to weather constraints. Topsoil was placed along the alley edges where required in 2021 and sod installation will be started in spring 2022. All topsoil areas will be reworked prior to placing new sod in spring 2022.

About the Project

Alley renewal in King Edward Park will entail reconstructing the alleys identified to a new residential or commercial standard, as applicable. The construction will consist of removing the existing road structure, placing a new gravel base, completing minor concrete replacement, installing a new asphalt overlay and finishing with minor landscaping restoration.

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.
