Sherwood Drive Functional Improvements
The Sherwood Drive Functional Improvements project was originally part of the Wye Road Functional Planning Study, developed to meet long-term traffic demands for both existing and proposed developments. Following the 2015 update to the study, Strathcona County and Al-Terra Engineering Ltd. have proceeded with the detailed design of the recommendations for Sherwood Drive Functional Improvements.
The Sherwood Drive Functional Improvements Project involves upgrades along Sherwood Drive from Village Drive to Ash Street/ Wye Road Gardens, approximately 0.7 km in length. The upgrades include improvements to the intersections and corridor along Sherwood Drive to improve traffic safety and capacity.
Improvements include the following:
- Addition of double left turn lane southbound on Sherwood Drive, turning onto Wye Road
- Lengthening of the northbound left turn bay from Sherwood Drive onto Fir Street
- Conversion of the all-directional accesses at Wal-Mart and Sherwood Centre (location of Petro Canada and Shoppers Drug Mart) to a right in/out
- Addition of traffic lights at intersection of Sherwood Drive/Range Road 233 and Ash Street/Wye Road Gardens
This project is currently in the design phase.
