Township Road 550 Upgrades
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.
This project is currently in the Design phase.
This section of road will be upgraded to a Class 1 Roadway and will move to construction once land acquisition, utility agreements, and regulatory approvals have been completed.
