PROVIDE YOUR INPUT
From fall 2019 to early 2022 we will be working with stakeholders and the public to gather feedback to develop design concepts, evaluation criteria and recommended plans for the 128 Avenue N.E. study area. We will do this in three phases:
- Discover Phase: Discover opportunities, challenges, priorities and evaluation criteria for the study area with stakeholders and the public
- Explore Phase: Explore design concepts and evaluation results with stakeholders and the public
- Reveal Phase: Present preferred plan to stakeholders and the public
Following the Explore Phase of Engagement in July of 2020, the team is conducting additional technical reviews and expect to be back out to the public for engagement in the winter of 2021.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
128 Avenue N.E. provides an important east-west connection through the Stoney Industrial Area which is identified for significant future growth of industrial development. The road connection is required to accommodate all modes of transportation, including motorists, public transit, cyclists, pedestrians and heavy vehicles accessing the Stoney Industrial Area. The objective of this study is to identify the functional planning design and preferred locations for the road and bridge(s) placement, determine efficient connections to existing roads and identify long-term right-of-way requirements.
- Better accommodate people who walk, bike, take transit and drive.
- Improve safety for those who travel through, or commute along, the study area.
- Provide new connection of 128 Avenue N.E. between Barlow Trail and Stoney Trail.
- Plan for new interchanges on both Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail.
- Provide new crossing over CP railway and Nose Creek.
