The 112 Avenue Enhancements project is part of a larger plan to reconstruct the roadway between 50 Street and 68 Street. The section between 62 Street and 68 Street was selected as a Complete Streets pilot and involved a public consultation process to select public realm improvements including custom furnishings, lighting and tree planting systems. Realizing these improvements on a constrained arterial road right-of-way presented many technical and process-related challenges as needs and priorities had to be balanced with safety and the maintenance of non-standard infrastructure. The presentation will include a summary of the transportation planning and public engagement processes and highlight some of the challenges encountered in the implementation of the public realm improvements.
