As part of improvements to the intersection of Highway 63 and Saprae Creek Trail (Highway 69), crews will mobilize in early September to begin work. Upgrades will include the widening of Highway 63 at the intersection to three lanes, both northbound and southbound, and installing new traffic signals and signage.

During construction, access will be maintained, with two lanes open for traffic northbound and southbound. Traffic signals and signs will be in place to notify drivers of the construction.

E Construction will be acting as the municipality’s contractor on this project, supported by consultant Associated Engineering.

Work is expected to begin Sept. 1, stop during the winter, and resume in spring 2017. Construction is expected to be complete by July 2017.

This construction is as a result of the 2014 Wood Buffalo Land Exchange Agreement, whereby the municipality agreed to provide transportation infrastructure and ongoing maintenance of Saprae Creek Trail (Highway 69) and additional improvements on Highway 63 within Wood Buffalo. In return, the municipality received a land transfer from the provincial government.
