Highway 19 upgrades underway in Alberta

Posted on May 12, 2017

Construction is underway on the $25-million upgrade of a section of Highway 19 in Alberta. The work includes upgrading and installation of traffic signals at 34 Street (Range Road 252) and construction of a new intersection to the west at 42 Street. Highway 19 will be widened from two lanes to six lanes along the 1.8-kilometre section of road at the east end of the highway. In addition, ramp improvements will be made at the Highway 2 interchange.

Alberta Transportation is cost-sharing the project with Remington Development Corporation and Edmonton International Airport. Working with partners will improve coordination and reduce overall traffic impacts on motorists and local residents.

This work is being done as part of the first step in twinning Highway 19 and to provide capacity for current and future development. The intersection improvements and additional highway lanes will improve safety and access at this critical junction. Weather permitting, this work is expected to be complete in fall 2017.

Alberta Transportation will also be adding a fourth southbound lane on Highway 2 between 41 Avenue SW and Highway 19. The tender for this project is being prepared and work is expected to begin this summer. Depending on when the bids are reviewed and a contractor hired, construction could be complete as early as fall 2017.
