About the Project

In 2015 the City completed construction on a grade-separated interchange in south Edmonton, at the junction of Queen Elizabeth II (QEII) Highway and 41 Avenue SW. The project is jointly funded by Alberta Transportation, the City of Edmonton, and the Federal Government through the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Corridor Initiative (APGCI).

This partial cloverleaf interchange converted 41 Avenue SW into a continuous corridor with full access to and from QEII highway. Further, a new bridge was constructed over Blackmud Creek on the realigned section of 41 Avenue SW. The project also included a road/rail grade separation of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) tracks east of QEII highway.

Completion Update - December 2015

Construction is now complete and the interchange opened to traffic on November 19, 2015.
