Downtown Redevelopment

Stony Plain's downtown is the core of the Town, where residents and visitors can shop, live, work, and play.

The Downtown Redevelopment project, planned for completion in 2020, aims to build on the existing small-town feel in historic downtown for residents, businesses, and visitors.

Phase I

Phase I was completed in 2017 behind businesses on 50 Street including:

  • One-way lanes and new multipurpose trails
  • Paved line markings and overhead lighting

2017 Updates

Phase II

Main Street, from 54 Avenue to just south of the 52 Avenue intersection, will be CLOSED for construction from approximately June 27 to November of this year. There will still be modified pedestrian access to the area.

Downtown Redevelopment construction will involve a number of closures of the sidewalks in stages along both sides of Main Street including alley crossings. Access to businesses will be maintained during construction.

During this work, Main Street parking between 52nd and 54th Avenue (including 53 Avenue between east and west alleyways) will not be permitted.

Construction timelines are weather dependent.

Town Signs

New signs have been installed on Highway 16A, welcoming visitors to our town! More signs will appear over the next few years.The inspiration for the design concept comes from Heritage Park. Its unique attributes include the seal, font, wood posts, exposed metal brackets and bolts along with stone cladding. 

Town entrance sign

Phase I of this project will see the installation of both secondary and tertiary welcome signs. 

Veterans Boulevard

This two-year construction project will widen and pave all of Veterans Boulevard. In 2017, the first portion of the road from Highway 16A to 44 Avenue was completed. The remainder of the road will be finished in 2018. The north end will have four lanes, and the south end will have two lanes. New walking trails will be added along the roadway.

By fully paving Veterans Boulevard, the Town is fulfilling its commitment to the ‘complete streets' philosophy. The new roadway will increase the Town's north-to-south interconnectivity, prepare the community for future developments east of Veterans Boulevard and improve access to the rest of Town.
