QE II Highway and 41 Avenue SW Interchange
Completion Update - December 2015
Construction is now complete and the interchange opened to traffic on November 19, 2015.
About the Project
In summer 2013 the City began construction on a grade-separated interchange in south Edmonton, at the junction of Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Highway and 41 Avenue SW. The project is jointly funded by Alberta Transportation, the City of Edmonton, and the Federal Government through the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative (APGCI).
This partial cloverleaf interchange will convert 41 Avenue SW into a continuous corridor with full access to and from QEII highway. Further, a new bridge will be constructed over Blackmud Creek on the realigned section of 41 Avenue SW. The project will also include a road/rail grade separation of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) tracks east of QEII highway.
Objectives of the Project
The overall QE II Highway – 41 Avenue interchange will meet the following objectives:
- For the City of Edmonton, the project will serve current and future transportation needs within Edmonton, particularly with respect to anticipated traffic demands related to proposed urban, commercial and industrial developments in Edmonton.
- For the Province of Alberta, it will facilitate travel both within Alberta and inter-provincially.
Where Are We Today
Construction on the interchange began in summer 2013 was completed in 2015.
