Downtown Enhancement Project

The City will be undertaking the next phase of the Downtown Enhancement Project on Lougheed Highway from 224 Street to 226 Street. This project will build on the earlier projects completed in 2011, 2013 and 2014 to support Council’s goals for the revitalization of the Town Centre and add to the vibrancy of the area. The objectives of the Downtown Enhancement Projects include increasing the livability of the Town Centre, supporting business growth and encouraging future investment in the area, while enhancing the street experience for pedestrians and shoppers and the safety of road users.

The Downtown Enhancement of Lougheed Highway (224 Street to 226 Street) project includes roadway excavation and construction of concrete curbs, sidewalks, planted medians, street trees complete with modular soil system, street lighting, traffic signal modifications, irrigation, pavement markings, and asphalt milling and paving.  The project construction has a tight time frame with substantial completion by November 2018.  The project is receiving $2.3 million in federal and provincial funding from the Small Communities Fund that requires overall project completion by March 31, 2019.
