Barlow Trail N.E. Reconstruction

Project Update – March 1, 2021

Construction is set to start in mid-March 2021 and is anticipated to be substantially completed by the end of October 2021. During construction, there will be lane shifts and speed reductions. Businesses will remain accessible throughout construction.

On Barlow Trail, during the two major construction stages, traffic will be shifted to either side of the road; however, two lanes will be available both north and south during peak times. Please follow all posted signage in the construction area including speed reductions and expect delays.

To minimize future traffic delays in the same area, in coordination with the reconstruction of Barlow Trail, there will also be major rehabilitation work on the bridge deck of the 16 Ave. N.E. bridge over Barlow Trail N.E. and other parts of the bridge structure.

To assist you in better understanding the scope of both projects, you can watch the Public Information Presentation video below.

Thank you for your patience during the construction period.

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.

Project details

The project will include:

  • Pavement restoration and reconstruction on all northbound and southbound lanes on Barlow Tr., between 4 Ave. and Sunridge Blvd. N.E.
  • Pavement restoration of the eight ramps connecting Barlow Trail and 16 Ave. N.E.
  • Safety improvements including the extension of the center median from 7 Ave. to 16 Ave. N.E.
  • Operational and safety improvements at the 4 Ave. and 7 Ave. N.E. intersections
  • A new multi-use pathway along the east side of Barlow Tr. beside Meridian Rd., from Centre Ave. to 28 St. N.E.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is construction being done here?

The road has exceeded the road and pavement life span and replacement is part of the roadway life-cycle work. Pavement work has been completed north and south of this project scope in previous years. The 2.5 km stretch within the project scope is the remaining area that needs restoration. Furthermore, there are safety improvements being made to Barlow Trail including the addition of a center median south of 16 Ave. Median and traffic signal improvements at 4 Ave. and 7 Ave. will also be made to help reduce traffic delays in the future and improve road safety in the area. Lastly, the project will include a new multi-use pathway along the east side of Barlow Tr. beside Meridian Rd., from Centre Ave. to 28 St. N.E.
