A lot of exciting things are happing on 3 Ave S. In addition to the Reconstruction Project now underway from 4 to 8 St, the City is also embarking on the 3 Ave Beautification project - a plan to rejuvenate this entire 1.6 km corridor. This project will design both the esthetics and the function of the street, creating a safe, friendly, vibrant and appealing space for not just cars but also transit, pedestrians and cyclists.

Prior to the construction of Highway 3 (Crowsnest Tr), 3 Ave S functioned as the major road through Lethbridge along Highway 3 east and west of the City limits. Since Highway 3 was reconstructed (mid 1980s), 3 Ave S has transitioned to a commercial corridor between Scenic Dr S and Mayor Magrath Dr S. Because of these years of change, the functional and visual characteristics along 3 Ave S vary significantly making it disconnected and at times, dysfunctional.

The development of the 3 Ave Beautification Project will take into consideration current businesses as well as existing planning documents such as: Transportation Master Plan, Heart of Our City Master Plan and Cycling Master Plan. Community engagement and feedback will be a critical part of this plan. We look forward to working with residents to create an exciting new vision for 3 Ave S.
