Neighbourhood Reconstruction is scheduled for Strathcona as part of the 2019 to 2021 construction program.

Project Update - April 2021

Construction is tentatively scheduled to start the week of April 26, 2021 (see construction scope map). If you live in an area of the neighbourhood that will experience construction, prior to the start of construction in front of your house, the Contractor working for the City will deliver a bulletin outlining details such as timeframes of construction, landscaping and access information.

Neighbourhood Renewal construction work consists of: 

  • Replacing curbs and gutters

  • Replacing sidewalk and driveway connection links

  • Replacing any removed landscaping (including new sod)

  • Completing road rehabilitation and asphalt paving

  • Replacing street lights  

  • Park and public space renewal 

82 Avenue to 87 Avenue
101 Street to 96 Street (except 99 Street)

  • Concrete and road work: A section of road along 98 Street between 82 Avenue and 85 Avenue will be completed in June 2021. 

  • Landscaping: Landscaping inspections on sod and planting beds for seating nodes will be done in June 2021. Proposed and approved tree plantings will be planted along 86 Avenue, 97 Street and 96 Street in the summer of 2021.

Please be advised that topsoil areas will be reworked prior to placing sod in spring 2021. These affected areas are 98 Street from 82 to 85 Avenue and 84 Avenue from 99 to 96 Street.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as the City completes renewal work in your neighbourhood. 

About the Program

Reconstruction in Strathcona started in spring 2019 with completion expected for 2021. A series of public events gave residents the opportunity to view the design plans and discuss details with the project team.

Neighbourhood reconstruction is a type of neighbourhood renewal that involves road reconstruction and repaving, as well as replacement of street lights and reconstruction of sidewalks, curb and gutter. Alley renewal is not part of neighbourhood reconstruction. It also includes the opportunity for 2 local improvements, sidewalk reconstruction and decorative street lights.
