Barlow Trail N.E. reconstruction

The City is planning to undertake life-cycle pavement restoration and reconstruction work on Barlow Trail N.E. from 4 Ave. to Sunridge Blvd. N.E., including rehabilitation of the 16 Ave. N.E. ramps.

As part of the project, a new multi-use pathway will be built on the east side of Barlow Trail along Meridian Rd., from Centre Ave. to 28 St. N.E. The addition of this missing pathway link will enhance safety and connectivity for all travel modes, in addition to improving pedestrian access to businesses along this busy corridor.

Additional life-cycle major bridge deck repairs on the 16 Ave. N.E. bridge are being planned by The City, to be completed in coordination with the Barlow Trail project in 2021.

These improvements will help to ensure the road continues to be safe, functional and in great condition for years to come.

  • Pavement restoration and reconstruction on all northbound and southbound lanes on Barlow Tr., between 4 Ave. and Sunridge Blvd. N.E.
