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.

Program Engagement

From September to November 2018, the City hosted conversations with stakeholders and the public about the Yellowhead Freeway Conversion Program. The What We Heard Report (11MB) from April 2019 provides additional information about the results of those conversations.

156 Street to St. Albert Trail

The concept plan for Yellowhead Trail at 149 Street was developed after an extensive public engagement process in 2014. The City worked closely with a group of area stakeholders and members of the public to review alternatives and develop the recommended plan.

Modifications will be made to 3 roads that run parallel to Yellowhead Trail to support new traffic patterns. The design phase for these modifications began in 2019 and public engagement is complete on 2 of the sub-projects, 124 Avenue and 128 Avenue. Public engagement will happen next as part of the design phase of the 123 Avenue project.

128 Avenue

Construction will start in May 2019.

Past engagement activities in this area included:

  • A public information session in March 2019 so the public could learn about planned construction and view the final design plans for 128 Avenue

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.

Public Engagement - Phase 2

The City held public engagement sessions on June 19 and 22, 2019 and online engagement until July 6 to help us adjust the design of the future roadway network. We invited you to help us improve:

  • The criteria that will be used to evaluate the design options

  • Proposed paths and connections for those who bike and walk

  • How we’re proposing to accommodate vehicles where roads and alleys will be closed to Yellowhead Trail between 68 Street and 62 Street

Input received during Phase 2 engagement will help refine the preferred concept plan that will be shared in fall 2019. 

66 Street - Winter 2019

During Phase 1 of the concept planning study, the project team met with area residents, commercial property and business owners, and community organizations, as well as those who drive, bike and walk through the area. The City held public engagement sessions on March 5 and 9, and people could share their feedback online from February 21 until March 16, 2019.

We discussed plans for the removal of the traffic signals at Yellowhead Trail and 66 Street and impacts of the potential closure of 66 Street at Yellowhead Trail. We collected valuable feedback and heard how important 66 Street is to local businesses and residents.
