City Launches Let's Talk 100 Street

March 27, 2019

The City of Fort St John is undertaking a significant planning, design, and engagement process to upgrade underground utilities along 100 Street while exploring options for above-ground improvements including sidewalks, vehicle lanes, street furnishings, and lighting.  

“This project signals a huge leap forward in our commitment to revitalize downtown. We know that underground infrastructure must be replaced and we want the input from our residents on this once in a lifetime opportunity to improve this major corridor,” stated Acting Mayor Lilia Hansen.

The downtown has some of the oldest underground infrastructure, and last summer’s watermain break was a clear indication that the time has come to proceed with this work. While the overall project will extend from 96 Avenue to 110 Avenue, the work will be undertaken in multiple construction phases, beginning at the southern end in 2020 and progressing northwards as determined by engineering requirements.

To date, there have been three consultation events confirmed:
