Check out this map showing proposed changes from 50 Street to the North Saskatchewan River.

Public Engagement Sessions

The City held public engagement events on July 17 and 20 and a business engagement event on July 12, 2019 to gather feedback on the Yellowhead Trail East Widening project. Your input, together with technical, safety and policy requirements, will help advise us as we develop the road design.

About the Project Area

Yellowhead Trail will be widened to 6 lanes starting just west of 50 Street and continuing east to Victoria Trail to accommodate projected traffic growth and to improve safety and traffic flow along the roadway. Reconfiguration of the ramps at the Victoria Trail interchange will be required as part of the widening. In addition, some minor adjustments to the interchange ramps at 50 Street will be made to improve their operation. Access between the eastbound and westbound lanes of Yellowhead Trail near 35 Street will be closed.

Where We Are Now

The concept plan for this project was completed in August 2016. Design work started in spring 2019 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2019.
