Project Update - December 2020
Neighbourhood renewal work is complete for 2020 in Strathcona! Construction began on April 29 and was completed on November 1. During the 2020 construction season, we completed the following:
82 Avenue to 87 Avenue from 101 Street to 96 Street including road reconstruction, sidewalks, curbs and gutters and street lights
A raised bike lane on 87 Avenue and a 2-way protected bike lane on 100 Street
Rail Trail shared-use path (SUP) from Gateway Boulevard to 107 Street
Planned work for 2020 that was not completed includes 98 Street from 82 Avenue to 85 Avenue. It has been deferred to May 2021 in order to coordinate with the relocation/lowering of the Atco gas intermediate pressure pipeline. Proposed and approved tree plantings will be planted along 86 Avenue from 97 Street to 96 Street in summer 2021.
Neighbourhood renewal work will resume in Strathcona in the first week of May 2021, weather pending. The planned scope for 2021 will include 101 Street to 96 Street, from 87 Avenue to Scona Road. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences.
We are pleased to report that with the completion of 2020 work, Strathcona remains on schedule with a planned completion date of November 2021.
