The City of Red Deer (CRD) is planning to undertake the North Highway Connector project in Alberta, Canada.

The project involves the construction of six lane ring road connecting Highway 2 on the north side of the city, along Highway 11A to a new 20 Avenue on the east side of Red Deer, on south to McKenzie Road and on west back to Highway 2.

The project will be implemented in phases.

The first phase of the project, expected to cost US$120 million, involves the removal of some pockets of trees, embankment grading from the intersection of Gaetz Avenue North and Highway 11A east along the Northland Drive right of way toward 30 Avenue, and major utility installation and the building of a wildlife crossing structure.

Phase 1A includes a major earth moving operation, major existing utility relocations, land acquisition, and new utility installations, a wildlife crossing structure which was completed in 2012.

Phase 1B, expected to cost US$55 million includes the construction of the Northland Drive Red Deer River Bridge, the Canadian National Railway bridge, 6km of two lane roadway and reconstruction of the 67th Street and 32nd Avenue intersection.

Phase II involves construction of bridges across the Red Deer River and CN rail line and actual construction of the first 2 lanes of the expressway, Northland Drive from Gaetz Avenue to 30 Avenue making the two lane expressway into a four lane.

Phase III, works scheduled to begin in 2019, involves expansion of the number of lanes and a second bridge across the river as well as construction of 20 Avenue.

Phase IV works scheduled to begin in 2022, includes the initial 2 lanes of 20 Avenue from 67 Street to 32 Street.

Eventually interchanges will be constructed at Gaetz Avenue, 40 Avenue, 67 Street, 32 Street and 19 Street. In future the ring road will be extended to west of Highway 2.

The US$36 million wastewater project is being funded through a federal-provincial-municipal partnership and funding will be required from multiple sources.
