Upcoming Changes

As a part of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program, the East Widening project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2021. The upcoming changes to finish the project include:

  • Widening eastbound Yellowhead Trail to 3 lanes, between 61 Street and the North Saskatchewan River

  • Removal of the existing northbound to eastbound ramp at Victoria Trail

  • Realigning the Victoria Trail loop ramp to accommodate northbound traffic

  • Replacement of overhead signage

  • Installation of median cable barrier between 50 Street and Victoria Trail

  • Completion of drainage work and street lighting

  • Landscaping

Two lanes of traffic will be maintained in each direction during peak daytime hours. During off-peak hours, at times, eastbound traffic may be reduced to 1 lane. Paving and on- and off-ramp closures will take place overnight as required. Advance notice and signage will be in place as well as detours. All pedestrian access will be maintained throughout construction. We appreciate and thank you for your patience during construction.
