Project Update - September 2022
The project is currently in the planning and design stage. Stakeholder engagement with adjacent homeowners began in August. Further stakeholder engagement is planned over the next couple of months to gather additional feedback for the project.
Information and updates regarding the project will be shared on this page as they become available.
About the Project
95 Avenue from 163 Street to 189 Street will undergo renewal. Renewal projects rehabilitate roads, replaces street lights, sidewalks, curbs and gutters, and adds missing sidewalk links, where possible. The project is also considering other opportunities that improve how people walk, bike, roll, drive and gather.
Engagement with residents and stakeholders is critical to help inform the development of the design plans. The City makes decisions using a combination of policy and program information, public engagement input, technical requirements and available funding. This process helps to ensure the decisions we make are fiscally responsible, align with best practices, consider the existing public and private infrastructure, land uses and activities along the roadway, and result in the best outcomes for our city.
We acknowledge the previously removed painted bike lanes on 95 Avenue did not meet expectations of the public, and the project team is making every effort to ensure the new design is appropriate and suitable, while allowing for the safe accommodation of all road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles. 95 Avenue is identified as a district connector as part of the City of Edmonton’s Bike Plan, as well as a missing link in Edmonton’s cycling infrastructure. In alignment with this plan, the design will include a new shared pathway along the corridor. This shared pathway is meant for all active users, including pedestrians, wheelchair users, cyclists or other people strolling, rolling or walking. Please note: the contemplated shared pathway is different from the previous painted bike lane.
