About the Project
City staff conducted a concept planning study for 66 Street from Ellerslie Road SW to 23 Avenue NW to determine the improvements needed to this 2-lane, partially urbanized roadway. Review the recommended concept plans.
66 Street serves as an important commuter route connecting residential areas in the City’s south side to Whitemud Drive and downtown Edmonton.
North of Whitemud Drive, 66 Street becomes 75 Street, a major commuter and goods movement corridor, and an integral part of the City’s inner ring road.
New residential neighbourhoods planned for south of Anthony Henday Drive are driving a need to reassess the roads serving those areas.
This study addressed the widening of 66 Street and the following key issues:
- Safety and efficiency of intersections
- Requirements and connections to the flyover at Anthony Henday Drive
- Future traffic growth and flow
- Completing missing shared-use path and sidewalk connections
- Property impacts

Where We Are Today
Interviews with impacted stakeholders were conducted in February 2014 and the recommended concept plan was completed in spring 2014.
To date, no funding has been allocated for the widening of 66 Street along the study corridor and construction timelines are unknown.
