Open house on south Strathcona County transportation study

Strathcona County is conducting a functional planning study in its southwest area. The study will determine what upgrades will be required over the next 30 years to support future traffic volumes.

Residents are invited to attend an open house to come learn about the project, its purpose and timeline, and provide input to inform our understanding of the study area.

The study area is bounded on the west side by Range Road 234, on the south by Township Road 510, on the north by Highway 14 and on the east by Highway 21.

These roads are expected to require upgrades as growth occurs in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region. The study will determine long-term transportation needs over the next 30 years, including number of lanes, road grades, intersections and other road characteristics.
