About Wye Road improvements

Wye Road is a high-volume traffic road providing an important connection to the region, and a significant entrance to Strathcona County. The design and recommendations for this project were developed with input from stakeholders through significant public engagement.

The Wye Road Functional Planning Study recommends further improvements from Clover Bar Road to a future interchange at Highway 21. This is expected to happen in the long-term horizon (20+ years), once future development along that corridor occurs.

Wye Road improvements have been completed in phases, and construction started in 2008. Developer requirements, regulatory approvals and municipal funding are all considerations for timing and phasing of any major roadway project.
