Project Update - October 2023
This year, work on the Fort Road Widening Project focused on completing the CN bridge over Fort Road and removing the temporary bridge detours. With trains operating on the new structure since the middle of July, construction activity has been progressing towards completing the majority of work by the end of 2023, with some carryover work expected for 2024.
On October 30, Fort Road reopened to reduced capacity with 1 lane of traffic for travel in both directions. As construction continues, we plan to gradually reopen more lanes of traffic throughout 2023 and into early 2024, along with pedestrian and active mode access.
The project includes the widening of Fort Road to 6 lanes from Yellowhead Trail to 66 Street. Additional changes include:
Widening of the CN Rail underpass
Increased CN Rail underpass clearance by lowering Fort Road
New shared-use path on the west side of Fort Road
Improved sidewalk on the east side of Fort Road
A new industrial collector road from 61 Street to 71 Street, west of Fort Road, will be constructed including a new shared-use path and sidewalk.
