135 Street is set to replace 127 Street as a connector to the Anthony Henday Drive in the southwest.

The City will construct 135 Street to replace 127 Street as a major arterial connection to Anthony Henday Drive in southwest Edmonton. It will also provide transit/Kiss & Ride access from Anthony Henday Drive to the new Heritage Valley Park & Ride. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2018.

About The Project

135 Street/Anthony Henday Drive Connection

A future interchange is planned west of the existing 127 Street connection to Anthony Henday Drive to provide access to the Heritage Valley area to the south. The first two lanes of 135 Street will be constructed north of Ellerslie Road with ramp connections that align with the future interchange location.

135 Street will also provide transit/Kiss & Ride (passenger drop-off area) access from Anthony Henday Drive to the Heritage Valley Park & Ride and transit centre.

The project is currently in the design phase. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2018.

Ellerslie Road Twinning – 135 Street to 127 Street

Due to the required re-routing of traffic from 127 Street to 135 Street, Ellerslie Road will be widened to a four-lane arterial roadway from its current two-lane configuration between 127 Street and 135 Street.

Construction is scheduled to be complete in 2019, with initial utility work beginning in 2018.

Design for the widening of Ellerslie Road between 111 Street and 127 Street is underway as a separate project, with funding for 2020 construction to be requested with the next Capital Budget.

Background

Alberta Transportation (AT) has identified safety and operational concerns at the 127 Street right-in/right-out access to Anthony Henday Drive. Anthony Henday Drive is a provincial roadway, and AT had originally planned to close the 127 Street access to Anthony Henday Drive in November 2016.

The Province granted the City of Edmonton’s request to delay closing the access until new safe on-off ramps could be constructed.

To prepare for this closure, the City of Edmonton has initiated design work on the first stage of the future Heritage Valley Trail/135 Street connection to Anthony Henday Drive. An agreement between the Province and the City of Edmonton states 127 Street will close when the 135 Street replacement opens. This closure will occur no later than June 30, 2019.

November 29, 2017: Public Information Session

The Capital Line South LRT Extension will run from the current Century Park Station to Ellerslie Road. It will connect to the Heritage Valley Park & Ride located at the northwest corner of Ellerslie Road and 127 Street. 135 Street connection to Anthony Henday Drive will replace the existing access at 127 Street. It will also provide transit access from Anthony Henday Drive to Heritage Valley Park & Ride.
