The City is replacing the noise wall on Yellowhead Trail from 97 Street to Fort Road.

The existing wall was built over 35 years ago and a City assessment found that the current system was in fair to poor condition and was approaching the end of its service life. The City is replacing the noise wall along the south side of Yellowhead Trail from 97 Street to Fort Road as part of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program.

Replacing the existing wall with a new system will provide the opportunity to:

  • Ensure communities continue to be buffered from traffic noise on Yellowhead Trail, at noise thresholds below City policy

  • Improve the look and feel of the area by incorporating a modern structure that is designed to reflect community input

  • Create a visually pleasing and improved environment along the corridor

Noise Reduction Systems

Noise walls have changed since the existing wall was built over 35 years ago. Modern noise reduction systems have the potential to be a feature in the community and along the corridor.


Here are some examples of contemporary noise reduction systems. Several ideas will be shared with the public, community and stakeholders.

Public Engagement

The City values public input and recognizes its importance in identifying the needs of area residents and businesses as well as all Yellowhead Trail road users. The insights and opinions of the community, public and stakeholders are an important element of this project.

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