Your input is important to us. Let’s start the conversation. We want to hear from you.

The feedback received will be used in design considerations for various projects within the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program. Your input will also guide the development of future communications and engagement plans, so they reflect your ideas and preferences for how you want to be involved and informed.

Project Update - January 2015

Transportation Planning is focusing on refining the preferred concept plan for Yellowhead Trail at 149 Street. The preferred concept includes one-way service roads parallel to Yellowhead Trail on the north and south sides. There is no connection proposed for 149 Street across Yellowhead Trail. Transportation Planning is currently evaluating the changes that will be required to the surrounding road network to address changes in travel pattern as a result of the proposed plan.

Preferred Concept Plan

The recommended plan for Yellowhead Trail at 149 Street was developed after an extensive public engagement process. The City worked closely with a group of area stakeholders and members of the public to review alternatives and develop the recommended plan.

82 Street to 50 Street

Concept planning for the area surrounding 66 Street was complete in 2012, but did not include a plan for the changes at the 66 Street intersection. A number of those concept plan pieces will carry forward. See the project page for a complete list. A major focus of the concept plan will be the intersection of 66 Street and Yellowhead Trail with the removal of the traffic signals.

Concept planning is an important time to provide your input and help shape Yellowhead Trail.

Public engagement will begin in early 2019. Throughout January and February there will be several opportunities to share what is important to you. This information will help decision-makers develop criteria and potential options for the configuration at 66 Street. This input is incorporated with other information such as technical, policies and freeway standards. Once we have potential options we are committed to coming back for more input.

Please check back for information on engagement opportunities or sign-up for email updates.
