The public are invited to an open house highlighting the City of Lethbridge's 3 Avenue South Reconstruction project.
3 Avenue South Reconstruction Project Open House
Wednesday, June 21, 2017
2 – 6 p.m. | CASA ATB Financial Community Room (230-8 St. S.)
Funding for the reconstruction of 3 Avenue from 4 Street to 8 Street South was recently approved by City Council in the new 2018-2027 Capital Improvement Program. This Open House will inform the community of the project design and consult with stakeholders on the staging of construction.
Based on the important work of past planning studies, 3 Avenue reconstruction will focus on streetscaping, a term used in urban design to describe bringing together all elements that give a street character. It will aim to increase accessibility for pedestrians, while still meeting the needs of motorists. Streetscaping looks at things like lighting, seating, paving materials and plants/trees. This project will also upgrade underground infrastructure (Scenic Drive to Stafford Drive) and improve access, traffic efficiency and safety making it a more vibrant and pedestrian friendly street.
Participants can see the detailed design from 4-8 Street and preliminary design from Scenic Drive to 4 Street and 8 Street to Stafford Drive.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2019 and be completed in 2020. To learn more visit www.lethbridge.ca/3AveReconstruction.
