Major road construction has started.
On Monday (May 14), Strathcona County started widening Wye Road between Mitchell Street and Estate Drive. This will improve the Wye Road and Brentwood Boulevard intersection.
"We've seen some issues at the intersection in past years, mostly with capacity," said Garry Johnston, Strathcona County manager of project construction and engineering.
Construction will also improve road efficiency and safety. The county's goal is to result in a more walkable community through street lighting, crosswalks, sidewalks and trails.
This project will restrict the regular flow of traffic and may cause delays.
Construction should be completed by the end of August, weather permitting.
