Fall and Winter 2019 Update

Engagement for this project has ended. 

Thank you to everyone who participated in our public engagement event, 2 pop-up events, stakeholder meetings and information session.

The What We Heard/What We Did report for all 2019 engagement and information sharing activities is now available. The report provides information about how public and stakeholder input was used in making design changes within the project area.

Read the What We Heard report from June and July 2019 engagement activities. Public and stakeholder input from summer engagement events, together with technical, safety and policy requirements, helped advise the preliminary design for Yellowhead Trail from 50 Street to the North Saskatchewan River.

About the Project Area

Yellowhead Trail will be widened to 6 lanes starting just west of 50 Street and continuing east to Victoria Trail to accommodate projected traffic growth and to improve safety and traffic flow along the roadway. Reconfiguration of the ramps at the Victoria Trail interchange will be required as part of the widening. In addition, some minor adjustments to the interchange ramps at 50 Street will be made to improve their operation. Access between the eastbound and westbound lanes of Yellowhead Trail near 35 Street will be closed.

Where We Are Now

The concept plan for this project was completed in August 2016 and design work was completed at the end of 2019.
