The Revitalization Project covers Main Street Lac La Biche from 100 Street to 103 Street and includes replacing underground utility lines and beautifying Main Street. The next phases of the project are planned to start in spring 2023.
If you missed our Main Street Revitalization Drop-In Session, held on October 18, 2022, click this link to view information from the event.
The beautification aspects, like mature trees, benches, landscape beds, updated street lighting, specialized signage, and stamped pavement, are intended to support businesses along Main Street, creating an attractive atmosphere for residents and tourists. The underground utility lines, which make up the bulk of the project’s cost, will modernize ageing infrastructure, and serve nearby business owners and residents for many years to come.

While detailed design is currently completed, key changes include:
- Keeping the sidewalk width effectively the same, while increasing it at intersections to improve pedestrian safety;
- removal of a proposed cross walk; and
- retaining the 60 degree parking angles.
The concept plan also includes left-hand turn lanes at each intersection to allow for the smooth flow of traffic. Stay tuned for more updates as the detailed design unfolds and we get closer to the 2023 construction season.
