Township Road 550 Upgrades

Township Road 550 in a summer day

Township Road 550 is planned to be upgraded between Range Road 220 (north) to Highway 830. The Township Road 550 upgrades will help provide a safe and sustainable roadway to help support growth.

Proposed upgrades include constructing 1m wide shoulders on the existing roadway, improving the roadway asphalt surfacing, and providing gentler ditch side slopes. The original road is 7.0m wide, has no shoulders and has steep slide slopes. These characteristics make it difficult for vehicles to pass each other, and the steep side slopes add collision severity risk for vehicles leaving the roadway.

Intersection improvements will be constructed at Range Road 221 (south) and Highway 830/Township Road 550 intersection and is proposed to be converted into a four-way stop.
