About the Project
101 Avenue was once the primary route into Edmonton’s downtown from the east. The construction of Terrace Road and the James MacDonald Bridge in the late 1960s and early 1970s allowed traffic to bypass 101 Avenue and provided a more direct route to downtown.
The avenue’s right-of-way was originally built to accommodate higher volumes of traffic than has been experienced over the last few decades.
The Greater Hardisty Community Sustainability Coalition has engaged with various groups to determine how they can manage change, decline, and development in their neighbourhoods. Part of this discussion has centered around 101 Avenue, the main commercial road in the area.
The community has raised concerns about vacant commercial properties, crime, a lack of street identity, and a lack of services for residents. However, 101 Avenue has a lot of potential to become a more welcoming destination for the adjacent neighbourhoods and the broader east-Edmonton area.
The community has expressed a desire to develop a vision for the corridor and proactively work to shape the future of 101 Avenue. In response to the community’s energy and interest, the City is working on a Vision and Corridor Study for 101 Avenue.
The Hardisty cluster of neighbourhoods has active and engaged citizen groups whose input will be essential to the success of this project, and all are invited to participate in determining what the future holds for 101 Avenue.
The study area includes 101 Avenue and its adjacent properties from 79 Street to 50 Street.
