The Southwest Strathcona Functional Planning Study was presented to Council on October 17, 2023.

This document will be used to guide future development in the area and includes projected traffic volumes for the next 20 to 30 years. The study will be updated, when required, based on changes to engineering standards, land use or highway access.


As growth continues 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 20 to 30 years. These roads may need improvements as urban development occurs. 

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