The Jordan Village Improvement Project is a major undertaking by the Town of Lincoln to rebuild and improve the infrastructure in Jordan Village. The project will include low-impact development construction techniques and features to reduce factors of climate change. The project is expected to encourage active transportation and to enhance the area for residents, businesses and visitors.

This project will align with several of the Towns plans, including:

To learn more about the project, please read the October edition of the Community Investment Update.


Project Goals

The Jordan Village Improvement project will create an anchor destination for residents, businesses, and tourists by building a connected and beautified neighbourhood that focuses on safety, complete streets, landscape appeal, and local heritage.


Project Highlights

Some of the key improvements this project will bring to Jordan Village include:

  • New signalized intersection at King Street and Nineteenth Street
  • Pedestrian Square at Main Street and King Street
  • Integration with new Jordan Museum and existing commercial district
  • Increased neighbourhood appeal through landscaping and roadway pavers
  • Focus on investing in the local tree canopy
  • Wayfinding pillars and signage
  • Improved decorative streetlighting
  • Dedicated cycling facilities and increased pedestrian connectivity
  • Community parking lot and arrival zone

Project Objectives

Many improvements to the existing infrastructure on Main St., Nineteenth St., Wismer St., and Twenty-First St. will be completed in order to meet the project goals.

These improvements fall under three categories and include:

1. Underground work:

  • New sanitary main servicing Nineteenth Street, Wismer Road and Main Street with the outflow on Twenty-First Street
  • Integration of new stormwater system with “Soil Cell” technology servicing all streets on the project with two (2) outflow areas:
    1. The intersection of Nineteenth Street and Fourth Avenue
    2. Into the existing outflow at Main Street and Twenty-First Street
  • New watermain servicing the area’s residents and businesses

2. Surface work:

  • Construction of new signalized intersection at King and Nineteenth Streets
  • Two (2) new three way stops along Nineteenth Street at Snure Lane and Wismer Street
  • Closing of Main Street’s access to King Street and the creation of pedestrian plaza
  • Combination of hot mix asphalt and roadway pavers for driving surfaces
  • Sidewalk construction on all streets
  • Dedicated cycle-path on both boulevards along Nineteenth Street
  • Two (2) Retaining Wall Systems:
    1. Main Street south Parking Lot
    2. Existing sidewalk along the Valley
  • New street lights on all streets
  • Construction of new roadway across from the Fire Hall - Snure Lane
  • Installation of wayfinding pillars at intersections

3. Aesthetic enhancements:

  • Enhanced electrical and street lighting component complete with ambient lights and wayfinding pillars
  • Extensive tree and shrub planting to enhance the area
  • Reconstruction and Enhancement of Existing Parking lots:
    1. Reconstruction of south parking lot on Main Street
    2. Reconstruction of parking lot next to Fire Hall
    3. New overflow lot behind Fire Hall)
  • Construction of a new road, Snure Lane

Phases of Work

The construction is expected to be completed in staged phases as outlined in the October 2022 - Phases of Work Map. The following stages of construction are subject to change. The Town will host consultations with stakeholders to inform them of any changes that may occur to this schedule.

Nineteenth Street and Snur Lane Road Reconstruction

  • Construction activities continue on Nineteenth Street between Wismer Street and the future Snur Lane. Weather permitting, Snur Lane will also be constructed by the end of this year before the construction crew starts their winter shutdown. Work includes removing existing roadway features, trenching for new water and sewer mains, and installing new roadway curbs, driveways, on‐street parking bays, and sidewalks.

Winter Shutdown

  • Construction activities will continue as late in the season as the weather allows. Typically, construction will continue until December. Due to freezing ground and snow, our contractor will pause construction activities until the Spring thaw allows construction to continue. Typically, spring construction will reinitiate in early March. Our contractor plans for this shutdown and will phase construction to minimize disruption over the winter.

Final Layer of Asphalt Paving

  • You may have noticed a slight gap between the newly paved asphalt and the concrete curb gutter. This was done intentionally as it is good practice to allow time for the base layer of asphalt to settle. The final layer of asphalt provides a smooth finish at the final grade. This also allows for minimal seams between different phases of construction. As such, the last layer of asphalt will be delayed a minimum of one year to allow for a smooth, seamless finish at the end of the project.
