Southwest Strathcona County Functional Planning Study

Join our online discussion panel, September 21 - 29, 2020.

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.

About the online discussion board:

Residents can read different topics and information about the transportation study. There will be questions posed and opportunities to share feedback on the different topics. Residents can participate in interactive discussions by posting their comments. They can see what others have to say and discuss with each other as well. County subject matter experts will be available as moderators to answer questions and clarify.

As part of Strathcona County’s efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, engagement is being held online. A second open house was planned for spring 2020; however, this was postponed until now, due to COVID-19.  

Phase 3 – Present recommendations
The final recommended functional plan will be presented at a future open house or engagement event. We are considering engagement options to ensure all residents are able to participate.
