The Government of Alberta has listed updates to provincial highways and related intersections following the 2022 construction season.
During the 2022 construction season, Alberta’s government invested $1.6 billion in 203 projects, supporting more than 13,000 jobs across the province. This investment in Alberta’s major trade corridor highways ensures people, goods and services can move safely and efficiently, supporting further economic prosperity.
- Phase I of Highway 11 twinning is 95 per cent complete and the highway is fully open to traffic. Phase I involves twinning Highway 11 south of Sylvan Lake and two new roundabouts at the intersections of Highway 781 and Range Road 15.
- The new roundabouts improve efficiency and safety for traffic turning in all directions.
- The new roundabout west of Bentley at the intersection of Highway 20 and Highway 12 is 80 per cent complete and fully open to traffic.
- Construction work is mostly complete on the access improvements and grading for the new rest area located on the southbound side of Highway 2 at Wolf Creek, north of Lacombe.
“Building, maintaining and expanding our highway network is a major component for economic growth in Alberta. Our highway network is crucial for moving our products to market and making sure our store shelves are well stocked. The work done this year highlights our commitment to a safe, efficient and reliable transportation network.”
