231 Street, from Stony Plain Road to south of 97 Avenue
Last Updated: November 17, 2017.
- In order to provide safe access to 231 Street and onto Stony Plain Road (and vice versa), upgrades to 231 Street, including turn bays and appropriate sight lines, are required. Upgrades are also required at the intersection of 231 Street and Stony Plain Road to adequately and safely address additional traffic to/from Secord.
- The extent of this road construction is to construct the first 2 lanes of 231 Street from Stony Plain Road to the Secord neighbourhood collector road to accommodate growth and increased traffic flows from future subdivision developments.
- The approved design at the 231 Street intersection with Stony Plain Road eliminates the northbound to westbound and southbound to eastbound left turn movements. It will also remove the north and south movement across Stony Plain Road.
- The construction of 231 Street and the intersection modifications at Stony Plain Road will require a full closure of 231 Street to facilitate removal of the old road and construction of new underground utilities. This construction closure would be in place for the construction season of spring to fall of 2018.

“I had previously provided an update from the city saying that they wanted to have another access onto 231st Street opened by October 15th. Obviously that hasn’t happened so I wanted to share the latest information I just received from the city.
While some work was started, the city was awaiting approval from the Province to address the work that needed to occur to allow safe access onto Highway 16A/Stony Plain Road. That approval was needed during the campaign so I wasn’t made aware until afterwards which meant that by the time I could connect with the necessary people, it was too late to finish the necessary work. Therefore where we are at today is that the work is required to completed next year and the work should start as soon as the snow is gone. Unlike previous years, the city has a back up plan if the company who is to complete the road work does not do it. There is funding in the form a security that the city has that will allow us to do any or all of the work in 2018 if something goes wrong with the company who is required to do the work. This was not previously in place and so having that security will allow us to be certain that the additional access will be completed.”
