The project encompasses:

  • Widening Highway 97 to six lanes (4.5 km)
  • Upgrades to major intersections (Leathead, McCurdy, Findlay/Hollywood and Sexsmith Roads)
  • Realignment of Rutland Road to reduce congestion and increase separation between Highway 97 and Rutland Road

This work is being done by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure as part of Highway 97 six-laning project. Finishing work, including curbs and gutters, is anticipated next year.
