82 Street to 50 Street: 66 Street Concept Plan

As part of the Yellowhead Trail Freeway Conversion Program, the City of Edmonton has launched a concept planning study for the removal of the signalized intersection at Yellowhead Trail and 66 Street and other nearby accesses.

Concept planning for the roadways between 82 Street and 50 Street, is now in the final stage of engagement. Minor modifications, which may include some changes to business property accesses, will be considered from this point forward in the concept plan.

Multiple options for the 66 Street and Yellowhead Trail intersection and the surrounding road network have been considered by our technical team over the last year and many engaged citizens participated in the process.

For what we’ve heard to date, please see the phase 2 What We Heard Report.
