Fall 2020 Engagement Update

Thank you for talking with us.

Your valuable input has helped shape the Fort Road Widening project's design plan and helped us better understand the needs of all Yellowhead Trail area road network users, area residents, and businesses.

Between October and November 2020, we presented a preliminary design plan and engaged with people to gather their feedback to help adjust and finalize this plan. We engaged with stakeholders, answered questions during online sessions and received your feedback through an online survey. The project team has reviewed and adjusted elements of the plan based on your input. As part of the public engagement process, we are committed to reporting back on how your input was collected and used.
