Design details for the future of Jasper Avenue are ready for viewing!

Jasper Avenue (between 109 Street to 124 Street) is transforming into an innovative, vibrant and relevant streetscape for the community, commuters, businesses and visitors.

Pre-construction work by EPCOR is anticipated to begin in fall 2019, with Phase 1 construction beginning in spring 2020!

The transformation of Jasper Ave is guided by the following principles:

  • Create a vibrant, all-seasons destination, a safe place for gathering for all ages and abilities.

  • Shape a community street: celebrate the history and diversity of its people.

  • Put pedestrians first, ensuring travel options, including walking, cycling, transit and vehicles.

  • Increase the green: enhance and beautify the street with trees and plantings.

  • Consider the Big Picture: reinforce connections and promote quality development.

For more information, please visit Imagine Jasper Avenue.
