100 Avenue Construction Starts June 2
Road work begins on 100 Avenue between 98 Street and Landing Drive on Thursday, June 2, to replace the road surface, expand the sidewalks, and replace adjacent infrastructure.
Work consists of milling the existing road surface and placing a new pavement surface, spot replacing concrete curb and sidewalks, minor repairs to the storm sewer infrastructure, re-establishing road line markings/crosswalk lines, and landscaping. The existing sidewalk on the north side of the road from 92 Street to 95 Street will be widened to increase pedestrian safety and mobility in the area.
Traffic is restricted to one lane and the speed limit is reduced to 30 km/hour during construction. Drivers are advised to proceed with caution, watch for flag people and anticipate potential traffic delays.
It is anticipated that crews will operate from Monday to Saturday and complete the project by mid-July.
