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 improvements 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 may be required over the next 30 years, to support future traffic and safety requirements.
Your input is an important part of this project and will inform study recommendations.
Phase 2 - Present preliminary options for feedback
A second open house was planned for spring 2020; however due to COVID-19, we are reaching out to affected landowners directly by telephone or video conference to discuss this project,
Phase 3 – Present recommendations
A final open house is expected to be held in fall 2020 to share the final study recommendations. We are considering engagement options to ensure all residents are able to participate.
Phase 1 - Background Review
October 2019 - Residents were invited to Open House #1 to learn about the project, its purpose and timeline, and provide input to inform the County's understanding of the study area:
