Construction Update - November 2023
Neighbourhood Renewal construction in 132 Ave Neighbourhood has wrapped up for the 2023 construction season!
2023 construction began in June and will finish the first week of November. The 2023 construction season was a success and we completed all planned construction including:
The reconstruction of roads, new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, Low Impact Development (LID) facilities, the new active transportation network and installed new street lights between 101 Street and 107 Street.
There are some areas in the 2023 construction area that still require minor landscaping, concrete work and site furniture. Once the weather warms up, typically in early May, the landscaping subcontractor will be completing the topsoil and sod placement. By waiting until spring, the sod is more likely to establish.
Collector renewal work will resume on 132 Ave between 101 Street and 97 Street and between 107 Street and 113 A Street in the second week of April 2024, weather permitting. The planned scope for 2024 will include the reconstruction of roads, new sidewalks, curbs and gutters, LIDs, new bike lanes and new streetlights. Prior to work resuming, construction notifications will be delivered to impacted residences.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we completed the first successful year of neighbourhood renewal construction. Construction on 132 Avenue began in spring 2023 and is expected to take five years.
Collector renewal on 132 Avenue is progressing on time and on budget.
Temporary traffic calming measures
With construction wrapping up for the season, the City of Edmonton will remove the adaptable curb extensions on roads connected to 132 Avenue. Some curb extensions will remain over the winter season to maintain safety in the area.
When construction resumes next spring, the City will review whether short cutting, speeding and/or risky driving behaviours are present on adjacent streets and if new adaptable measures should be considered.
