Beginning this spring, Pleasantview will be experiencing Neighbourhood Renewal construction.
Work is underway which will temporarily impact the mobility network surrounding 106 Street from 53 to 56 Avenue. The construction work consists of the removal and replacement of public sidewalks, curbs and gutters, street lighting, reconstruction and paving of the road, retaining wall construction and constructing raised bike facilities.
106 Street Construction Impacts
Work is underway which will temporarily impact the mobility network surrounding 106 Street from 53 to 56 Avenue. The first stage of construction is to construct a retaining wall along the west side of 106 Street from 54 to 56 Avenue. The work started on May 19, 2022, with anticipated completion at the end of October 2022.
On-street signage will direct people walking, rolling, cycling and driving to alternative routes.
Maintaining the Mobility Network
The City of Edmonton is committed to maintaining safe and efficient travel for all. Detours will be in place to support the safe movement for people walking, using mobility aids and biking.
While Walking and Rolling
While walking and rolling (strollers, wheelchairs and walkers) pedestrians of all ages and abilities are directed to use the sidewalk on the east side of 106 Street.
Vehicle traffic will be impacted and will be directed to alternative routes with on-street signage:
- Southbound vehicle closure with detours along 56 Avenue, 105 Street and 55 Avenue to Calgary Trail
- Northbound vehicle closure with detours along 53 Avenue, 105 Street, 56 Avenue to 106 Street
- Vehicles will still have access to Mount Pleasant Cemetery and Mount Pleasant Daycare with the full road closure
To enhance the comfort and safety of this bike detour along local roadways, the following measures will be in place:
- Southbound & northbound dedicated bike lane on existing northbound bike lane
