The project extends from 48B Street to Arthur Drive.

The contract involves the preliminary design, detailed design and construction management for the project.

The improvements will eventually include roadway works along 44th Avenue to accommodate a nine-metre-wide cross section to match Delta's local road standard, rollover curbs and gutters on both sides, a new 1.5-metre-wide sidewalk on the north side and new 1.5-metre-wide grassed boulevards with street trees where space allows.

The project will also include, among other things, crosswalk upgrades on 44th Avenue at 50th Street, new LED street lighting, drainage improvements including ditch infill and a storm sewer extension, as well as roadway rehabilitation.

The engineering department notes improvements are necessary along the roadway to improve street accessibility and aesthetics.

Construction is to begin in 2022.

The department also notes advanced project designs in the year preceding construction allow for more accurate construction costs.
