40 Avenue East Transportation and Servicing Corridor

In order to facilitate future growth, the existing section of 40 Avenue East is required to be extended further east. In order for 40 Avenue East to be extended, the approved development format outlined in the Southeast Airdrie Community Area Structure Plan (CASP) and King’s Heights Neighbourhood Structure Plan (NSP) will need to be amended. The approved land use districts dictated by these planning documents will also need to be amended.

Southeast Airdrie CASP/King’s Heights NSP Amendments

The City of Airdrie is currently reviewing amendments to the Southeast Airdrie CASP and King's Heights NSP. A section of the existing north-south service road (Kingsview Road SE) parallel to QE II Highway is located in close proximity to the proposed interchange and will be closed in the future to accommodate the project.

The documents listed below provide an overview of the length of the road extension, the proposed right-of-way and design for the road extension and the proposed changes to the Community Area Structure Plan, Neighbourhood Structure Plan and Land Use Bylaw.
