Progress in Boyle Street is happening, but likely will be slower than expected.

  • The new crossing at the Commonwealth Rec Centre under construction. Ernstuwe H. Koch

A lot is happening on the east end of Boyle Street. Upgrades to the Stadium LRT Station and parks in the residential area are being developed nearby on the Muttart Lands.

I have lived on Jasper Avenue and 86 Street for six years now, and have always been frustrated by the difficulty in going to the Commonwealth Rec Centre, which I can see from my apartment window. The City says a new pedestrian and vehicle road, Muttart Crossing, will connect 84 Street to the Stadium over the LRT tracks within the next year. I am predicting two years, because that is how things go.
