Neighbourhood reconstruction is scheduled for Lorelei in 2020-2022 and Beaumaris in 2021-2022.

Project Update - June 2020

In spring 2020, we are entering the first year of a planned 3-year construction for the Lorelei Neighbourhood. The 2020 scope of work will include Project 20, Project 21 and Project 22, as well as all alleys located in these areas. For information regarding project boundaries, please refer to the Construction Staging Map.

The 2020 Lorelei construction season will begin in June and consists of the removal and replacement of public sidewalk, curbs and gutters, alleys, curb crossings, catch basin realignment, street light replacement, the reconstruction and paving of the road, and placement of topsoil and sod. Construction will begin on the front street in Project 20 and simultaneously in the alley in Project 22.

Please watch your mailbox for construction bulletins that will provide more information along with contact details for any concerns regarding landscaping and access.

Local Improvement Update

Residents in Lorelei had the opportunity to participate in the Local Improvement decision.

Property owners were mailed a local improvement package dated January 27, 2020 which included information about the sidewalk and decorative street lighting Local Improvements and a form for those who wished to petition against either decorative street lighting or sidewalk reconstruction. The 30-day petition period has since expired. Decorative lighting was defeated and will not be proceeding. No sidewalk reconstruction projects within the neighbourhood were petitioned against. Sidewalk reconstruction will be moving forward throughout the duration of the project.   

If you have questions regarding the Local Improvement process specifically, please contact: localimprovement@edmonton.ca.

Beaumaris update 
Residents in Beaumaris will have the opportunity to participate in the Local Improvement decision.

In Beaumaris, the expression of interest for the decorative street lighting Local Improvement will go out this fall and the sidewalk reconstruction Local Improvement petition will take place in early 2021.  

About the Project
