South Strathcona County Functional Planning Study
Due to anticipated growth in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region, there may be an increase in traffic on the Township and Range roads within southwest Strathcona County over the next 30 years.
These roads may need upgrades as urban development occurs, including in the Decoteau area in southeast Edmonton, and within Leduc County, Beaumont, and Sherwood Park.
Strathcona County has retained Scheffer Andrew Ltd. to conduct a Functional Planning Study (FPS) to look at what road upgrades will be required over the next 30 years, to support future traffic volumes.
Your input is an important part of this project and will inform study recommendations. There are several opportunities to provide direct feedback:
