Project Update - Summer 2024

Fort Road mainline was reopened to the public in October 2023 at reduced capacity to accommodate ongoing structural work on the CN rail crossing. Additional lanes are anticipated to reopen beginning in early summer with full completion in fall 2024.

To improve business access on Fort Road west of 125 Avenue and the 71 Street business loop, existing access from Yellowhead Trail westbound off-ramp will be closed permanently. A new access point at 125 Avenue west will be opened. This closure is expected to begin in late July. 

Local businesses and visitors can now access the area through Fort Road (both northbound and southbound) or 125 Avenue (both westbound and eastbound). Additionally, the existing eastbound and westbound access from 82 Street will remain open to traffic.
