106 Street is a key corridor through Edmonton’s Pleasantview neighbourhood that can see 7,000 vehicles, as well as 300 pedestrians and 700 cyclists each day. Adjacent land use includes single family homes, multi-storey apartments and senior’s residence, a daycare, two cemeteries, park spaces, sports fields, and an elementary school.
When Pleasantview underwent reconstruction as part of the Neighbourhood Renewal Program, it was an opportunity to improve functionality and safety of the corridor and put the complete streets design philosophy to the test. Construction on 106 Street occurred throughout 2022 and 2023, and now includes raised bike lanes, missing link sidewalk connections, seating nodes, landscape enhancements, improved crosswalks including continuous crossings, additional on-street parking, and is now a public transit corridor.
The presentation will discuss how City goals, public feedback, and existing constraints influenced the final design.
