Concept planning is complete for the roadways between 82 Street and 50 Street and includes:
Removal of the signalized intersection at Yellowhead Trail and 66 Street
Removal of direct access along Yellowhead Trail, including 62 Street, 67 Street and 68 Street north and south of Yellowhead Trail
Provisions of alternative access to the surrounding communities
Partial interchange at 66 Street
A new ramp will provide access to Yellowhead Trail eastbound from both 66 Street northbound and southbound
A new shared-use path along the west side of 66 Street for pedestrian and cycle connections across Yellowhead Trail
A new collector road at 61 Street and 125 Avenue (constructed as part of the Fort Road Widening project) to provide westbound access onto and off Yellowhead Trail
Preliminary design is anticipated to begin late in 2023.
Design is anticipated to begin, including public engagement opportunities.
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.
There will be opportunities for the public to share their thoughts throughout the design phase of the project.
