Whitemud Drive Widening (75St/66St to 17 ST)

About the Project

In 2015-16, the City widened Whitemud Drive to six lanes from 75 Street/66 Street to 17 Street and build an auxiliary lane between the 66 Street and 50 Street ramps. The added lanes were constructed over the existing grassed median and a concrete median barrier was added.

Increased traffic volumes had created congestion on Whitemud Drive between 75 Street/66 Street and 17 Street. Widening of the current four-lane roadway meets the greater traffic demands and maintains roadway safety.

In addition to roadway widening, the project included:

  • Upgrading the drainage catchment system to service a wider roadway
  • Replacing and updating boulevard streetlights
  • Rehabilitating the existing road surface
  • Assessing and mitigating any possible environmental impacts around the Mill Creek Ravine
  • Creating enhanced access for heavy load carriers with a crossover
  • Updating roadside and overhead signage
