Delta Street Roadway Revitalization

(48 Avenue to Chisholm Street)


The road improvements phase began April 25, 2016, which includes removal and replacement of sidewalks, new street lighting, new stamped pedestrian crosswalks, road paving, and more. Work was completed on a block-by-block basis, beginning at the 47A Ave block and ending at Chisholm Street. Work was substantially completed in November 2016. 

Other updates:

  • To accommodate local traffic, the concrete crosswalk at the intersection of 48th Street and Delta Street will be installed in early 2017.

Traffic & Parking Disruptions
Going forward during construction, parking on the impacted blocks will be temporarily disrupted; however, pedestrian access will be maintained as long as it is safe to do so. Please view this map to identify public parking in the area.
