Check out this map showing the proposed road changes.
As of April 29, Yellowhead Trail is reduced to two lanes in both directions between 156 Street and St Albert Trail. Left turns to and from Yellowhead Trail, at 145 Street and 143 Street, are closed.
Existing intersections at 149 Street and 142 Street will be closed, and there will be no direct access to Yellowhead Trail from these streets. Road users will access Yellowhead Trail at the nearest interchange, at either 156 Street or St. Albert Trail.
All other access directly to Yellowhead Trail will be removed, including at 143 Street, existing service roads and existing business accesses.
One-way service roads will be built on the north and south sides of Yellowhead Trail to provide access to businesses and properties.
This project is anticipated to be complete by the end of 2023.
