Construction is now underway in Spruce Avenue. The construction includes removal and replacement of street lighting, public sidewalk, curb and gutter, as well as reconstruction and paving of the road.
The April Bulletin contains important project and contact information for residents and property owners, as well as a map of Spruce Avenue which identifies the scope of work planned for 2019. The Prime Contractor working for the City will deliver bulletins outlining the estimated start/finish dates of each portion of the project, along with their contact information.
The City thanks residents and property owners for their patience as we make these improvements.
For special concerns or access requirements, such as DATS, please contact the Construction Project Manager, Ikenna Uju at 780-508-9412.
114 Avenue Bike Infrastructure Update
The project team has gone through feedback collected at the public event in January 2019. Feedback was provided on design options for bike infrastructure between 97 Street and 102 Street, as these 2 blocks connect the existing shared use path west of 102 Street to the bike route in Alberta Avenue east of 97 Street.
Three popular themes emerged in that feedback:
Keep the roadway operation similar to what it is today
It was important to make intersections safe
Bicycle-activated signals at both intersections (97 Street and 101 Street) were very important
The project team has considered the feedback collected as part of the design process and has included the following in the design of the street between 97 Street and 102 Street:
A shared roadway, where bikes and traffic will share the roadway single file
The intersection of 114 Avenue and 102 Street will be upgraded to an all-way stop with reflective tubing
Bike detection will be installed at the intersection of 114 Avenue and 97 Street, and 114 Avenue and 101 Street along with signal upgrades
