Construction has started up again for the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program. The first major construction begins with the widening of Yellowhead Trail from 61 Street to the North Saskatchewan River. Construction of off-corridor improvements will continue with projects on 128 Avenue and 123 Avenue, as well as some minor work to be completed on 125A Avenue.
Yellowhead Trail is becoming a freeway with 3 lanes of free-flowing traffic in each direction.
The Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program will be implemented through a combination of large and small projects that supports efficient delivery of each phase of planning, design and construction and minimizes impacts to road users, residents and businesses.
