About the Project
A concept plan has been developed illustrating the modifications required to remove the 149 Street intersection as part of the freeway conversion. The project will eliminate the current north/south connection of 149 Street across Yellowhead Trail and includes one-way service roads that run parallel to Yellowhead Trail on the north and south sides.
142 Street and 143 Street on the northside of Yellowhead Trail will be closed, eliminating the current westbound to southbound movement to 142 Street. Eastbound access to 142 Street and St. Albert Trail will be solely from a one way service road on the southside of Yellowhead Trail. There will be ramp modifications to the interchanges at 156 Street and St. Albert Trail.
The concept plan for Yellowhead Trail at 149 Street was developed after an extensive public engagement process in 2014. The City worked closely with a group of area stakeholders and members of the public to review alternatives and develop the recommended plan.
Where We Are Today
Design work is underway for changes to 124 Avenue between 142 - 149 Streets and 128 Avenue between 156 Street and St. Albert Trail. Additional design work will begin in 2018.
