The Government of Canada will invest CAN$39m to improve a railway crossing in Edmonton which it claims will reduce congestion and travel times into the city.
The crossing, located at 50th Street, will have a new underpass beneath the existing railway crossing north of the Sherwood Park Freeway. In addition, two new traffic lanes will be added to the current four in operation. The intersection at 82 Avenue and 50th Street will be reconstructed to maintain connections between local residential neighbourhoods and commercial developments. Meanwhile, new sidewalks and shared use paths are being set up to help commuters to reach their destinations more quickly and safely.
