Grande Prairie Construction Plan
Grande Prairie bypass construction plan

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.

Project details

Construction on the 4-lane divided highway includes:

  • grading
  • granular base course
  • paving
  • 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
