Timeline and Funding
Construction began in May 2011 and is now complete.
The 215 Street Widening was funded and managed exclusively by an independent developer, Melcor Developments Ltd, and its consultant, AECOM Canada Ltd.
When an independent developer begins a residential or commercial project they also develop the roadways to accommodate any traffic impact from the future development. These projects are funded and managed exclusively by the developer. It is the City of Edmonton’s responsibility to ensure the developers are complying with the approved standards and specifications.
