127 Street Reconstruction Update
Reconstruction of 127 Street from 118 Avenue to Yellowhead Trail began May 1.
- Base asphalt and walk on the east side of 127 St from 122 Ave to Yellowhead Tr.
- Drainage work.
- Pedestrian signals now operational at 123 Ave and 124 Ave.
- Removal of road and sidewalk on the east side from 118 Ave to 122 Ave.
- Gravel base, concrete work and base asphalt on the east side from 118 Ave to 122 Ave.
- Streetlights on the east side from 118 Ave to 122 Ave.
- Installation of the pedestrian signal at 122 Ave.
On August 7, the contractor switched all traffic to one lane in each direction on the reconstructed west side of 127 Street. This traffic switch remains in place until Stage 3 construction begins in early October.
Traffic barriers across 124 Street at 123 Avenue remain in place as part of the Prince Charles Community Traffic Management Plan
with suggested detours to St. Albert Trail, 121 Street, 142 Street, 149 Street and 97 Street.
The implications of reinstating 124 Street as a detour, even temporarily, are significant for Prince Charles as it would see a return of 4,000-6,000 vehicles per day, as well as additional detour traffic adjacent to the neighbourhood park and residential properties during the summer months when more people are out and about. Street signs are in place to direct parents to the three schools in the area during construction.
Temporary shuttle service is available on 122 Avenue.
