The goal of the 2022 Victoria Promenade Project is to create a safe and accessible space for people of all ages and abilities, to walk, bike and roll.

Since the end of June, the public has been encouraged to provide ongoing feedback through Engaged Edmonton using the Feedback Form. The form is now closed because additional engagement activities are underway. Thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences with us. Insights shared will be incorporated into the project evaluation. Are you interested in learning more about what we heard over the summer and what we've adjusted so far? Read our update here.

Next Steps

  • Insights shared through public engagement will be used alongside vehicle volume and speed data, as well as cyclist and pedestrian counts to help inform next steps.

  • Any significant changes to the adaptable installation will be considered for Spring 2023 to allow us to continue to understand Edmontonians’ experiences with the infrastructure through all seasons.

  • The Oliver Neighbourhood has been identified as needing neighbourhood-wide renewal with a possible construction start in 2026- 2028. The future permanent facility will be based on input received from this pilot project and additional engagement for the overall renewal.


Additional information on the project evaluation and engagement has been added to Q&As.


Update: September 9, 2022

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on the Victoria Promenade Project over the summer!

Based on feedback regarding road conditions and a recent inspection of 100 Avenue, the City will be making repairs to the asphalt on Monday September 12, 2022 along 100 Avenue between 116 Street and 121 Street. The work will start at approximately 9 am, pending weather and site conditions, and will take less than a day to complete. Flaggers will redirect people driving and biking safely around the site as the crew goes block to block patching the problem areas.

To date, the City has received 177 completed feedback forms on this project. Insights shared through ongoing engagement will be used alongside data collected around vehicle speeds, vehicle, cyclist, and pedestrian counts to inform future adjustments to the installation.

Stay tuned for additional announcements on opportunities to participate in upcoming engagement activities this fall. Please subscribe on the right hand side of your screen to receive notifications of project updates.

Answering Your Questions

Two of the most common questions we’ve been getting:

1) Will emergency vehicles be able to access buildings? The answer is yes. The plan meets the City’s Design and Construction Standards (CDSCS) which was developed in conjunction with emergency services.

2) Why are two one-way bike lanes being implemented instead of one two-way bike lane? While this was considered to maintain existing parking, it was not advanced due to both physical space constraints and safety.

June 28,2022

In 2020 and 2021, the City of Edmonton installed a mobility lane on Victoria Promenade as part of a city-wide project to help everyone stay safe and comply with Alberta Health Services physical distancing guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic. The mobility lane expanded the existing painted eastbound bike lane, allowed pedestrian usage, and provided separation from moving cars with traffic cones.

Based on the feedback received, narrowing the road helped reduce speeds and supported street safety and livability; however, there was frustration with the look and movability of the cones, as well as confusion about directionality and how to use the mobility lane while cycling.

This spring, the City of Edmonton gathered feedback on four proposed options for the 2022 installation. The goal of the engagement process was to understand the lived experience of the people who travel and live along Victoria Promenade and which proposed option they prefer for the next phase of the project. You can read the What We Heard report here.


What happens next?

After reviewing what we heard from public engagement, recommendations from City policy, and technical requirements, the City is installing Option 2.

Bike lanes along Victoria Promenade will open in July 2022 to help everyone safely share the space. The adaptable installation includes two protected one-way bike lanes for people scooting and biking, freeing up the sidewalk for people walking, using mobility devices or strollers, and clearly defining space for motor vehicles. The eastbound bike lane and westbound bike lanes will be separated from vehicles with flexposts and parking curbs—the same materials used in the Downtown Bike Network. Traffic calming will also be added on the northside of 100 Avenue between 116 and 117 Street to encourage slower speeds. Pavement markings, parking curb and flex posts will be used to narrow the roadway and create a sharper entry angle at the entrance to the Promenade.

See our FAQ for more information.


CORRECTION TO RESIDENT MAIL-OUT: There was an error on the postcard stating new parking stalls would be added to 117 Avenue. This is incorrect and should have read, new parking stalls will be added to 117 Street. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. New parking spaces are added to 117 Street, not 117 Avenue.
