To accommodate growth and increased traffic flows expected from future developments along Anthony Henday to Ellerslie Road, 50 Street has been widened from 2 lanes to 4 lanes.

Construction included:

  • 50 Street (Anthony Henday Drive to Ellerslie Road) widening to 4 urbanized lanes
  • Ellerslie Road and 50 Street upgraded to urban intersection
  • Upgraded Traffic Signals at Ellerslie Road and 50 Street Intersection

The 50 Street Widening was funded and managed exclusively by an independent developer, United Communities Ltd., MLC, and engineering consultant, Stantec Consulting 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.
