Construction to widen Yellowhead Trail to 6 lanes has started at 61 Street and continues east to the North Saskatchewan River. The work is anticipated to be completed November 2021. For more information, view the most recent East Widening construction bulletin.
This map shows proposed changes from 61 Street to the North Saskatchewan River.
To accommodate projected traffic growth and to improve safety and traffic flow along the roadway, Yellowhead Trail will be widened to 6 lanes starting just west of 50 Street and continuing east to Victoria Trail. This means:
Ramp reconfiguration at the Victoria Trail interchange will be required
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
