    • 4 lanes (2 lanes in each direction) from 156 Street to 149 Street 

    • 2 lanes (1 in each direction) from 149 Street to 142 Street with a third (centre) lane as a 2-way left turn

  • Addition of dedicated right-turn lanes at the approaches to the 156 Street intersection

Public Engagement

The City values public input and recognizes its importance in identifying the needs of all Yellowhead Trail road users, area residents and businesses. Each segment of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program is being built to balance the roadway requirements with community, business and commuter needs. See Program History to learn more about past public engagement activities.

To follow the physical distancing requirements currently in place due to COVID-19, all in-person information sessions have been put on hold. We value your input and encourage you to participate in future opportunities when they are available. 

Please contact us with your 123 Avenue questions by emailing
