Construction Update - May 2018

Reconstruction of 122 Avenue from 92 Street to Fort Road will begin in May with an anticipated completion by fall 2018.

Traffic Impacts

92 Street to 82 Street
During construction, one side of the road will be closed at a time. One-way traffic on the other side of the road will be maintained. The directional closure will be completed in phases and every third intersection will remain open (two intersections in between will be closed). ETS buses travelling east and westbound will be detoured.

82 Street to Fort Road
A full road closure will be implemented in phases, however every third intersection will remain open (two intersections in between will be closed).

Access to businesses, emergency access and residences will be maintained for the entire route at all times.

About the Project

122 Avenue is currently a 2-lane ‘collector’ roadway with parking on either side. A Concept Plan will be developed for 122 Avenue between 107 Street and Fort Road prior to undergoing road reconstruction, scheduled for 2017. The intent is to update the roadway and to ensure road design consistency across the five neighbourhoods located along the corridor. Road reconstruction includes the complete removal and reconstruction of road surfaces, curbs and gutters, and streetlights.

An emphasis will be placed on function within the communities and efforts will be made to reduce speeding and shortcutting while accommodating the needs of motor vehicle traffic, transit, pedestrians and cyclists, as is possible within the roadway parameters. Through input from area residents and businesses, as well as area stakeholders, existing issues will be identified and neighbourhood priorities will be incorporated into the design, where possible.

Project Background

In 2015, the City initiated a Concept Planning Study for 122 Avenue between 107 Street and Fort Road as part of the City’s Collector Concept Planning program. The projects that make up this program are corridors identified through the Neighbourhood Renewal public involvement process that would benefit from further in-depth public engagement and analysis.

122 Avenue is an important east-west connection and transit corridor that provides access to commercial areas in the Fort Road area and residential neighbourhoods. 122 Avenue will also connect to the future Blatchford urban redevelopment and to the Metro Line LRT, once it is extended to the City’s Northwest limit. The concept planning study developed a new roadway configuration in order to update the corridor to meet the needs of current and future users. The speed limit will remain the same.
