The City of Lethbridge is beginning a functional planning and design process for 5 Avenue N and 13 Street along the following focus areas, including intersections:

  • 5 Avenue N, from Stafford Drive N to 43 Street N (excluding the section between 23 Street and 28 Street N)
  • 13 Street, from 26 Avenue N to 16 Avenue S (and 16 Avenue S from Scenic Drive S to 13 Street S)
  • Options that include Bicycle Boulevards on 12C Street N and 15 Street S
  • 16 Avenue S from Scenic Drive S to 13 Street S

These corridors have been selected for reasons:

  1. 5 Avenue N and 13 Street are important corridors connecting residential areas in north Lethbridge with downtown, the hospital and Hwy 3.
  2. Traffic is increasing on 5 Avenue N and 13 Street. As a result, the City anticipates the infrastructure upgrades will be required to improve safety, accessibility and vibrancy.
  3. The City of Lethbridge's Cycling Master Plan identifies 13 Street, from 26 Avenue N to 16 Avenue S and 5 Avenue N, from Stafford Drive N to 43 Street N as important protected bike lane connections within the City's bicycle network.
  4. 16 Avenue S between 13 Street S and Scenic Drive S is a short section of roadway with many conflict points.

How can you shape the future of 5 Avenue N and 13 Street ?

The City wants to understand how you use 5 Avenue N and 13 Street today and also wants you to imagine what it could look like in the future.

Gathering public and stakeholder input is a vital part of this functional planning and design process and we take your feedback seriously.

Your input will contribute to the goal of this project: To plan and design 5 Avenue N and 13 Street into corridors that consider, accommodate and design for all modes of transportation.

Community participation in this study will help the City identify existing challenges and opportunities along 5 Avenue N and 13 Street, develop road design options and develop different solutions to determine preferred designs.
