Feb 5, 2020 NACITE Luncheon
This month’s luncheon is sponsored by DIALOG / Al-Terra Joint Venture:
Japer Avenue is Edmonton’s signature main street. The Jasper Avenue New Vision is a major catalyst project identified in the capital city Downtown Plan and calls for the avenue to feature a high quality pedestrian experience including, a narrowed roadway, wider sidewalks, tree planting, and refined streetscape elements.
Reconstructing Jasper Avenue and redefining its look and feel, while also rehabilitating and working around existing underground structures such as pedways, convention centres, and LRT stations, doesn’t come without challenges. The project team had to get creative, be collaborative, and flexible to handle all the “curve balls” that come with working in the downtown core of Alberta’s capital city.
