14th Avenue Road Improvement Project
Phase 1 – Hurd Street to Tanager Street – Substantially Complete
See below for Phase 2 – March 2023 Update
March 16, 2023 Update – Phase 1 of this project is substantially complete with construction completed in October of 2022. The contractor will continue completing deficiencies as weather permits.
The City moved ahead with a 4-phase improvement program for 14th Avenue, and successfully completed the replacement of about 1 km of older, undersized watermain on 14th Avenue east of Caribou Street in 2021.
In 2022, the road was upgraded between Hurd Street and Tanager Street. The upgrades included a paved multi-use path on the south side of the road, a concrete sidewalk on the north side, concrete curbs and gutters, and street lights. On-street parking will generally be permitted, except near Caribou Street where a left-turn lane was added.

Phase 2 – Grand Street to Cade Barr Street
March 16, 2023 Update – Phase 2 of the 14th Avenue Road Improvement Project has started and design work for the improvements is underway.

This includes two travel lanes, left turn lanes at key intersections, on-street parking where possible, a sidewalk, a Multi-Use Path, curbs and gutters, street lighting, and other urban elements.

In addition to the road improvements, the project includes:
- Push-button activated flashing beacons at the 14th Avenue crosswalk at Horne Street,
- Upgrades to underground storm sewers (extending north on Cade Barr Street and east on Knight Avenue),
- A watermain extension to improve fire hydrant flows (extending north on Cade Barr Street to Knight Avenue and south on Horne Street to 13th Avenue).
A contractor has not been retained yet, but the project will be publicly tendered in April of this year. Construction is expected to be begin in May or June 2023 and will to take about 5 months.
What To Expect
A construction project of this magnitude will impact residents and road users. Project signs will be posted at each end of the project and traffic control personnel will direct traffic during periods of active construction. Every effort will be made to keep the inconvenience to residents to a minimum. Your patience and understanding when these works are underway are very much appreciated.
