Looks like I actually missed the answer for this on the project page. The new multiuse trail will go from 89th street to Fort Road, while people wanting to walk/bike/whatever between 89th and 97th streets will need to use the existing back alley. Also, the detailed plan for St. Albert Trail to 97th street shows that they'll build a multi-use trail from 142nd street to 107th streets, at which-point users will need to use the sidewalk or road at 124th ave (beside the cemetery), and then use the aforementioned alley which leads to the next multiuse trail. Overall, this isn't ideal - I wish that there'd be one continuous trail for the area. But, at least this will provide safer active connections than what previously existed. If anything, I'm still glad that the city pays attention to active, non-vehicular connections during such a major freeway project. I'm also happy that the trail will start at 142nd street instead of St. Albert Trail, even though that area is technically under the scope of a different sector.It's not mentioned in this tweet, but the noise reduction system from 97th street to Fort Road is also scheduled to begin this spring. It will also include the construction of a multi-use trail along the Yellowhead up to Fort Road, but the webpage does not specify how far down the Yellowhead it goes and the final design for this project is not on the website.
Just curious, they're gonna add shoulders on all the stretches of the Yellowhead that currently don't have them, right?Went to get a donair and it is the last business in that little strip mall on the NW corner of 142 st and Yellowhead. Girl said they are closing in about two months. Esso gas station became a big hole in the ground. And McDonald's next to it has been closed for a while. View attachment 332355

On the south side between 156 st and 149 st is where the most progress has been made. But they stopped heads on at Costco gas station which is still operational.
And I don't see them building a new one. Are they going to have a gap with fuel service for customers? Sorry for crappy phone zoom pic from 156 st overpass looking East.

Sorry for the late response, it took a looong time for the presentation to be posted on the city website. I checked it almost daily haha. The video was posted on June 9 apparently, but they marked it as unlisted so you need the link to access it. You can see the entire presentation here:I was too busy to attend the presentation last night on the upgrades b/w St. Albert Trail and 156 Street. Can anyone fill me in on some of the questions asked and the answers they gave?
