Range Roads 231 and 232 Functional Planning Study
Range Roads 231 and 232 between Highway 630/Wye Road and Highway 628/Whitemud Extension connect communities in south Strathcona County to Sherwood Park. These roads will require upgrades as growth and development occur.
Strathcona County conducted a Functional Planning Study (FPS) for Range Roads 231 and 232. A FPS looks at the long-term needs of the roads including the number of lanes, intersection controls, trail, and drainage requirements.
The study recommends improvements to maintain safety and traffic flow to support future growth. To support future traffic volumes, several intersections have been identified to require future improvements. The study’s preferred long-term intersection improvement was recommended to be roundabouts, traffic signals interrupt traffic flow, while roundabouts maintain traffic flow, improve safety, and have lower operational costs.
This project is currently in the planning phase.

Phase 1 – Background Review (Spring/Summer 2018)
February-March 2018: Property owners in the immediate study area were engaged through door-to-door meetings, kitchen table meetings and an online survey.
May 2018: Residents were invited to 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. Comments from residents were also accepted until June 1, 2018.

Phase 2 – Concept Development
October 2018: Residents were invited to an open house to to provide input on the design elements narrowed down after Phase 1 public engagement. This input will help inform the final study recommendations.
Phase 3 – Final Open House
May 2019: Residents were invited to learn about the recommended plans upgrades to safety and traffic flow to support future growth.
1. Will walking trails be constructed along Range Roads 231, 232 and 233?Permanent link to Will walking trails be constructed along Range Roads 231, 232 and 233?
We are currently evaluating the long-term needs of these areas as a part of our Functional Planning Study, and will be deciding about walking trails from the results of that study.
