Kenmount Rd Infrastructure upgrade - Phase II

Phase II work is completed with all lanes open to traffic as of November 28, 2019.

The city is upgrading the Kenmount Road trunk storm sewer. There are four phases of work required to upgrade the entire length of Kenmount Road to the Team Gushue Highway Overpass.

Phase II of the construction was Polina Road to Peet Street. Phase I in 2018 also aligned Polina Road. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for further details.

The new storm sewer will replace the existing aging infrastructure and provide additional capacity at the same time.

While traffic on Kenmount Road will be maintained during construction, there will be some disruptions and slowdowns. The City will make every effort to minimize interruptions and to maintain traffic flow, especially during peak rush hour.

Pedestrian access will be maintained during construction, and we ask the public to obey and follow all posted signage in and near the construction zone.

  • I go to school at Academy Canada on Kenmount Road and am just wondering would there be a Metrobus detour route set in place for this? After last year of a former student losing their job because the bus was an hour delay, just curious as to know if there are any plans in place for this.

    Mark White asked 6 months ago

    Hello Mark and thanks for reaching out. The City works with other stakeholders impacted by construction projects to minimize those impacts. The City will discuss the overall project with Metrobus prior to work commencing. Metrobus will have to decide if a detour route is required.  It will ultimately depend on the additional amount of time it will take to travel through the construction zone. Once those decisions are made, both the City and Metrobus will communicate any changes required.


  • Does the Project Drawings 2 document still reflect the final design?

    Mike Burton asked over 1 year ago

    That is correct.  Project Drawings 2 file shows the final intersection realignment.
