    105 Ave

    The City of Edmonton is hosting an information session before construction begins this spring on streetscape improvements to the 105 Avenue corridor between 116 Street and 119 Street. Residents, business owners and area stakeholders are invited to learn about the project, construction and traffic impacts.

    Date: Tuesday, April 28, 2015
    Time: 6:30-8:30 p.m.
    Location: Hellenic Canadian Community Centre (10450 116 Street)

    This project will transform 105 Avenue from a collector roadway into a local roadway used primarily by residents and businesses in the area. Design plans include dedicated bike lanes, shared-use pathways, landscaped sidewalks and curb extensions and limited on-street parking. Streetscape improvements and infill redevelopment will help shape the physical, economic and cultural character of the area.

    Those attending the meeting will be able to view display materials and speak with project team members.
