144 Avenue N.W. Improvements - Project Update

I would like to provide residents with the latest update regarding the 144 Avenue N.W. Improvements project.

Rock Excavation

As previously communicated, rock excavations and earthworks have been ongoing throughout the winter months, in order to expedite these removals in advance of 2023 construction.

Removals are expected to be complete by the end of March 2023; excavated rocks will be transported off-site for crushing and processing.

2023 Construction

Starting in mid-April, crews will begin installation of retaining and noise walls adjacent to nearby homes. Underground stormwater deep utility installations will also take place at the east end of the project area, by the community of Evanston.

Road grading to prepare for the future 144 Avenue extension will be completed to the east of the Symons Valley Road and 144 Avenue N.W. intersection; no traffic impacts are anticipated as part of this work.

Through summer and fall 2023, additional priorities will include:

  • Various roadworks to build the 144 Avenue N.W. extension, adjacent to Evanston;
  • Widening and traffic light installation at the Symons Valley Road and 144 Avenue N.W. intersection; and
  • Begin bridge construction over West Nose Creek.

As work progresses through the summer and fall, temporary lane closures and/or detours may be required at the intersection of Symons Valley Road and 144 Avenue N.W. Any required closures will be communicated as they are confirmed.

Substantial completion of the 144 Avenue improvements project is scheduled for fall 2024.

Project Timeline:

  • Finalize Engineering Design: COMPLETE
  • Construction Tender; Hire Contractor; Plan/Schedule Construction: COMPLETE
  • Construction: Spring 2022 to Fall 2024
  • Project Substantial Completion: Fall 2024

Please note: Construction Activities are dependent on several factors. Timelines could change due to inclement weather, underground conditions and/or other unexpected circumstances. Schedule updates will be provided.

I will continue to provide residents with updates regarding this project. Please visit the project webpage to learn more.
