Adelaide Street North – CP Grade Separation ("Adelaide Underpass")

About the project

The City is planning to reconstruct Adelaide Street from Central Avenue to McMahen Street in 2021/2022. This will include an underpass beneath the CP Rail tracks, nearby intersection improvements and active transportation connections with wide multi-use paths added on both sides of the roadway.

The new street design will enhance the pedestrian and biking environment, improve safety, reduce traffic back-ups due to trains and improve access to transit. It is being designed to improve route reliability, efficiency and safety for everyone crossing the railway. Learn more about the Adelaide Underpass here.

Looking for your input

As we work to complete detailed design ahead of construction next year, we are asking local community groups near the Adelaide underpass project area to let us know their urban design preferences. The input we receive will help us select the final materials and finishes.

Take a look at the three Options for urban design finishes in the sidebar of this page (Modern Option, Rustic Option, and Traditional Character Option), and vote for your top choice using the survey below.
