This $48-million project finishes the remaining 12 km of the bypass from 116 Street to Richmond Hill (Highway 43 west of Grande Prairie).
Construction from the junction of Highway 43/Highway 2 west to 116 Street is already complete.
Construction on the 4-lane divided highway includes:
- granular base course
- roundabout at the existing intersection of Highway 43X and 116th Street
- traffic signals at the new intersection of Highway 43X with Highway 43 at Richmond Hill
- bridge structures
- bridge culverts
- service roads
3 bridges will cross the Bear Creek:
- 2 on Highway 43X
- one on Township Rd 722
Design is complete and construction is underway, with the bypass expected to open in summer 2019.
This project will help:
- reduce traffic congestion on Highway 43 through the City of Grande Prairie
- improve traffic flow and safety for travellers, local residents and businesses
