Town of Canmore

Teepee Town Road Rehabilitation

We will be rehabilitating Mountain Avenue in Teepee Town this summer, funded by the Province of Alberta’s Municipal Stimulus Program (MSP), which was approved in late 2020. Following that work we will be looking for community feedback on a future network plan and road cross sections for future rehabilitation work. More details on the 2021 road works and subsequent network planning work are available below.

2021 Road Rehabilitation

The scope of work for the 2021 project will include new pavement on Mountain Avenue and the addition of residential streetlights. The project area is illustrated by the highlighted area in the photo below.

Construction Impacts - Updated September 29, 2021

  • Paving is complete. 
  • Work should be wrapped up in the next three weeks.

2021 Project Design

The design for the streets in this project are based on the principles set out in the Integrated Transportation Plan. The Integrated Transportation Plan is a policy document that establishes the guidelines for Canmore’s transportation network, and was developed with input from residents. 

*Note: The sidewalk shown below will not be constructed in 2021, it will be a part of future work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is only a small section of work being done this year?
This project is a direct result of a new Municipal Stimulus Funding Program from the Government of Alberta, which was aimed at putting Albertans back to work following the first pandemic closure. The amount of funding Canmore received is $1,663,216, which is allocated on a per-capita basis. Funds must be spent by end of 2021. This project was one of two that were put forward for these funds to be allocated towards. The funding will only allow us to do a small section of work. 
Why was this section of Teepee Town chosen?
This is one of the only sections of road which does not require utility upgrades. As such it will allow us to complete within budget and the tight timeframes associated with the provincial grant attached to this work.
Can we provide feedback on these designs?
We will be working with directly impacted homeowners on any impacts to their properties. If you are a directly impacted homeowner, we will be reaching out to you. We are not seeking feedback on the designs, as they are consistent with the Integrated Transportation Plan.

We will be looking for feedback from Teepee Town residents in the fall on a larger network plan for the neighbourhood, so that designs for future roadwork can be completed. More information on this is available below.

Get Involved - Future Network Planning 

The next step in planning for future road works in Teepee Town is to complete a network plan and finalize street concepts. We will be seeking input from the community on this in Q4 2021, stay tuned for more information. 

Utility and surface work rehabilitation for the remainder of the neighbourhood will occur as part of a future capital budget cycle, with street designs ready for implementation.
