Overview

Alberta Transportation and Economic Corridors is collaborating with the Town of Okotoks and Foothills County to complete a functional planning study at Highway 2 and 338 Avenue. The study will consider a new interchange to replace the existing at-grade intersection at Highway 2 and 338 Avenue.

Highway 2 is part the National Highway System and the CANAMEX North South Trade Corridor linking Coutts, Alberta and Sweetgrass, Montana to the BC border on Highway 43. It is currently a four-lane divided freeway used by approximately 27,000 vehicles per day. As traffic volumes continue to increase in the area, this section of the highway requires upgrading to safely accommodate growing traffic.

This study will examine:

  • operational considerations (for example: capacity, access, interchange configurations and right-of-way requirements) to develop functional plans for a new interchange
  • 338 Avenue’s alignment and how it connects to the future proposed interchange
  • input from Albertans including multiple stakeholders and adjacent property owners

Timelines

The study is anticipated to be completed in late 2022. Detailed design, construction timelines and funding have not been established at this time. Recommendations from this study will be considered for construction based on provincial priorities and funding plans.

Benefits

The current at-grade intersection at Highway 2 and 338 Avenue requires upgrading to safely and efficiently accommodate growing traffic in the area.
