Modifications will be made to 3 roads running parallel to Yellowhead Trail to support new traffic patterns. Road changes planned for 123 Avenue include:
A new sidewalk along 123 Avenue to support pedestrian movements in the area
Intersection modifications for truck turning movements with new centre concrete medians
4 lanes (2 lanes in each direction) from 156 Street to 149 Street and 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 2 dedicated right-turn lanes at the eastbound and westbound approaches to the 156 Street intersection
Removal of on-street parking along the avenue to support roadway changes
Roadway and sidewalk changes that may impact City boulevard trees - an assessment will be completed prior to final design
Removal of the existing out-of-service railway crossing east of 145 Street
Design work began in 2019 with construction planned to begin in 2020.
