127 Street access to Anthony Henday to close
Access to and from southwest Anthony Henday Drive at 127 Street in southwest Edmonton will be closed permanently to address safety issues.
The access will close on Nov. 12 at 10 p.m. It was built more than a decade ago when that section of Anthony Henday had intersections with signals, which lowered traffic speed.
These intersections have been upgraded to interchanges and various road improvement projects in the area are complete, so it is time to close the intersection to ensure the safe flow of high-speed traffic on the highway.
Local users will be able to get onto the provincial highway network from the following interchanges:
- Rabbit Hill Road and Anthony Henday Drive
- 111 Street and Anthony Henday Drive
- Ellerslie Road and Highway 2
Landowners will still have access to 127 Street via Ellerslie Road.
