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.

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Planning has begun for the 5 Avenue N and 13 Street corridors as well as the 16 Avenue S connection between 13 Street S and Scenic Drive S. In the spring, we asked the community about issues and opportunities along these corridors to help shape future plans. We’ve taken the information you provided and, at the upcoming community conversations event, the City will display a variety of options. Once again, we want your feedback! We want to know which options you like and don’t like, and we will fill you in on the next steps in the design for these important roads.

    We hope you will be able to join us for this special event:
