The City’s 2014 Strategic Transportation Plan (STP) identifies the City's highest traffic volumes are carried by three east west corridors: Lougheed Highway, Dewdney Trunk Road and Abernethy Way. The STP recommends improvements to the Abernethy Way Corridor in 4 phases:
Phase 1: Widening Abernethy Way from 210 Street to 224 Street
Phase 2: Widening Abernethy Way from 230 Street to 232 Street
Phase 3: Extend Abernethy Way east from 232 Street to 240 Street
Phase 4: Extend Abernethy Way east from 240 Street to 256 Street
The widening of Abernethy Way between 210 Street and 224 Street was completed in 2010.
This phase is currently in the design stage with construction planned for 2022.
Based on a review of existing and projected traffic volumes, a modified approach will include widening key intersections for the management of current traffic volumes. Please visit the project page for more information.
This phase is currently in the design stage with construction planned for 2025.
The new roadway will follow the east-west alignment of 124 Avenue. A diagonal s-curve will move the alignment to the southeast, connecting to 240 Street to the south of Hacker’s Haven Par 3, as shown in Figure 1. Phase 3 was approved by Council at the November 26, 2019 Workshop meeting.
Based on employment and population projections identified in the Abernethy Way Extension Study, the delivery timeframe for Phase 4 is 20+ years. The general alignment will utilize 124 Avenue. Phase 4 was approved by Council on November 24, 2020.
