Residents invited to review southwest transportation study recommendations

Strathcona County is inviting residents to review revised draft recommendations of a functional planning transportation study in the southwest area. The study will determine what upgrades will be required over the next 20 to 30 years, to support future traffic volumes as growth continues in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

Online discussion boards will be open from June 18 at 9 a.m. to June 29, 4:30 p.m. Discussion is open 24 hours a day, with staff moderators available from Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Residents can read different topics and information about the transportation study; share thoughts; see what others have to say and discuss with each other.

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.  

With input from Alberta Transportation, the City of Edmonton and Leduc County, the study will determine long-term transportation needs, including number of lanes, road grades, rail crossing realignments, intersections and other road characteristics. 

The final recommended functional plan will be presented to the public in Q3 2021.

This is the study’s Phase 3 engagement. Draft recommendations shared during online discussion boards in Phase 2 were revised to incorporate resident feedback as well regional planning considerations. In Phase 1, residents attended an open house to learn about the project, its purpose and timeline, and to provide input to inform the County's understanding of the study area. 

More information, and draft recommendations and engagement display boards are available at
