On November 6, 2020, the Province of Alberta announced funding for the 65 Avenue Interchange project, which will include a new overpass over the QEII, new on-off ramps from the QEII, improvements to some existing rampts, intersection improvements at 65 Avenue and 50 Street in Leduc, and completion of Perimeter Road and 65 Avenue, west of the QEII.
This interchange is critical infrastructure in supporting safety and ease of movement, and vital to future economic development that will occur locally, at the Edmonton International Airport and in the Edmonton Metro region.
The 65th Avenue project is subject to different regulations with oversight and approvals provided by a variety of authorities.
Environmental studies involving field and desktop analysis were conducted to confirm the Valued Ecosystem Components in the project area.
