Project Area from St. Albert Trail to 97 Street

Check out this map showing proposed changes from St. Albert Trail to 97 Street.

Proposed Changes

No decisions on the future roadway design have yet been made within this section of the Yellowhead Trail corridor. The Strategic Plan indicates new interchanges at 127 Street and 121 Street. Due to their proximity to each other, connections at 127 Street and 121 Street must be planned and designed together. The concept planning study for this area will also consider:

  • Removal of traffic signals at 127 Street, 124 Street, 121 Street and 107 Street 

  • Removal of direct access to Yellowhead Trail, including at 130 Street, 126 Street, and CN Rail

  • Alternate access to 130 Street, 126 Street, 124 Street as well as 107 Street

At the end of this study, the City will have a preferred concept plan showing required changes to the roadway network between St. Albert Trail and 97 Street to accommodate the closure of direct accesses to Yellowhead Trail. The concept plan will include interchanges, roadways and land requirements.

Project Timeline

Project Lifecycle Concept

Concept planning is underway and will identify the configuration of the interchanges and adjacent roadways, as well as any land required for their construction. An important part of concept planning is public engagement to ensure an understanding of area needs and possible impacts of roadway changes.

Phase 2: Explore and Refine Options

Fall 2020

Phase 2 of public engagement will start in fall 2020.

The Concept Planning Study will be complete by spring 2021 and will determine what will be designed and built.

What We Heard Report

Public Engagement

The City values public input and recognizes its importance in identifying the needs of all Yellowhead Trail road users, area residents and businesses. Each segment of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program is being built to balance the roadway requirements with community, business and commuter needs.

To follow the physical distancing requirements currently in place due to COVID-19, all in-person engagement sessions have been put on hold. We value your input and encourage you to participate in future opportunities when they are available.
