The City is planning to upgrade 232 Street, between 132 Avenue and Silver Valley Road, to a two lane arterial roadway standard. Upgrades will include pedestrian and cycling facilities, street lighting, curb and gutter and environmental works. The City has been working with McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. and Drdul Community Transportation Planning (cycling specialist) to develop a corridor that improves safety for all road users; and encourages multi-modal transportation by creating inviting pedestrian and cycling facilities and considering equestrian users.

A portion of the works will be constructed in fall 2017 to facilitate the major construction works scheduled to proceed in spring 2018. The 2017 project works generally consist of relocating Paradise Creek, constructing a 3m asphalt multi-use path, concrete curb and gutter, street light bases (for future lighting), catch basins, and storm drainage all on the east side of 232 Street between 132 Avenue and Birch Avenue.
The 2017 construction contract has been awarded to Double M Excavating Ltd. and construction is expected to commence the last week of September and be complete by the end of December 2017.
