Neighbourhood Renewal construction in Ottewell has wrapped up for the 2023 construction season!

Project Update - March 2024

It’s the second year of the Ottewell Neighbourhood Renewal and we are anticipating construction to start mid-April 2024! Work will consist of reconstruction and paving of the roads, removal and replacement of public sidewalks, curbs, gutter and street lighting. 

This year, the majority of construction will take place south of 92A/92 Avenues from 75 Street to 50 Street. A scope map will be sent out to residents outlining the specific areas to be constructed this year.

For those who live in the 2023 construction area, the remaining landscaping, road reconstruction and LID construction work is scheduled to start at the same time as this year’s construction. Landscaping work is highly dependent on weather and sod availability.

The City of Edmonton and EPCOR are working together to construct Low Impact Development (LID) , which will help with stormwater retention and help mitigate flooding. 

Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with details on landscaping and access. For special concerns or access requirements, such as DATS, please contact the Construction Project Manager, Andrew Trinidad, 780-496-4055. 

Construction in the Ottewell Neighbourhood began in summer 2023 and is expected to take 4 years (planned completion of fall 2026).

Local Improvements


Property owners within the boundaries of the first 2 years of construction of the Ottewell neighbourhood had the opportunity to participate in the Local Improvement decision.

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated February 3, 2023 which included information about the sidewalk reconstruction Local Improvement and a form for those who wished to petition against. The 30-day petition period has since expired. Since the City did not receive majority (50% +1) petitions against the Local Improvement, sidewalk reconstruction will take place in all project areas over 2 years of construction within this area of the neighborhood.

Property owners on streets scheduled to see construction 2025-26 can expect to receive their notices in early 2025. That notice package will include information on how to participate in the decision.

About the Project

Neighbourhood reconstruction rehabilitates residential roads, replaces street lights, sidewalks, curbs and gutters and adds missing sidewalk links where possible. Other opportunities to improve how people walk, bike, drive and gather in the neighbourhood and how they enjoy City-owned parks and open spaces are also explored.  

A series of public events were scheduled by the Project Team which gave residents the opportunity to build a Project Vision and Guiding Principles together and provide feedback on the different stages of the project, including design.

Cost sharing opportunities will be made available through the Local Improvement process for sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street light upgrades in the neighbourhood. Arterial roads and alleys are not included in the scope of work.
