  • Two new interchanges; one at 127 Street and one at 121 Street (previously referred to as  the 115 Street interchange)
  • A new roadway connection from 121 Street and 107 Street to the 121 Street interchange to provide access to Yellowhead Trail
  • New service roads to manage traffic flow 
  • A new pedestrian bridge crossing Yellowhead Trail at the new 127 Street interchange 
  • A new shared pathway on the south side of Yellowhead Trail from 142 Street to 107 Street

Project Update - April 2023

The project team is finalizing the preliminary design. The plan will include more specifics about the roadway and bridges, sidewalks and shared pathway, noise walls and landscaping.
