This project was identified in the 2014 Transit Master Plan (TMP) as being required at the 65,000 population horizon.
A provincial funding formula was presented to Council in February of 2019. The Province has committed to a 50/50 construction apportionment; however, the project currently resides on Alberta Transportations Unfunded Capital Project list.
Mayor Brown is continuing to engage provincial leaders and staunchly advocate the importance of the project.
The Capital Projects Office has been collaborating with Alberta Transportation for the last 18 months to create a detailed design that meets provincial specifications. The detailed design package is currently 95% complete and submitted to Alberta Transportation for review.
Discussions with Alberta Environment and Department of Fisheries and Oceans are on-going and are strategically aligned with the design of the interchange.
See the attached map of the exact location.
