100 Avenue is now re-open to vehicle traffic and parking!

Work remaining on the project includes electrical work, the instillation of a few remaining sidewalk paving stones, signs, and street furniture. All businesses have front access, and the sidewalks are open to pedestrians.

Construction began in May of 2018, and crews have been working diligently to open the roadway to vehicles. The Downtown Rehab Project aims at revitalizing Grande Prairie's core through infrastructure and streetscape upgrades. Over 1000 metres of the aging underground pipe system was replaced to avoid future failures and costly repairs.

The City thanks you for your continued support of downtown businesses, and for your patience throughout the construction.
