Weekend Henday work restricts Sherwood Park Freeway

Starting after the Friday evening rush hour, bridgework at the Sherwood Park Freeway-Henday Drive interchange will result in weekend detours.

By Monday morning, free-flow traffic will be restored after crews install girders for the new Sherwood Park Freeway interchange as part of the NE Anthony Henday Drive project.

  • Using Alberta’s P3 model for highways allows Northeast Anthony Henday Drive to be finished in 2016, three years earlier than through conventional delivery and at a savings of $370 million for taxpayers.
  • The Alberta government has committed more than $4 billion toward the construction of the Edmonton ring road, including the northeast section, a $1.81 billion investment.
  • This project is one of many that deliver on Alberta Transportation’s Building Alberta commitment to support the economy and increase market access by focusing on capital plan projects for core infrastructure and key corridors.
