Design for new Leduc interchange jointly funded
The Government of Alberta is partnering with the City of Leduc and the Edmonton International Airport (EIA) to fund design work for a new Leduc interchange. The interchange, at 65 Avenue and the QEII highway, is the next step in connecting industrial development south of Leduc’s 65 Avenue with the EIA’s Perimeter Road.

More than $131 million in water projects announced by province
The Government of Alberta has announced more than $131 million for 22 new and seven existing clean water and wastewater projects across the province. These grants come from the Water for Life and Alberta Municipal Water/Wastewater Partnership. Additionally, municipalities and water commissions will contribute nearly $68 million for work that will improve access to safe, reliable water supplies and enhance environmentally-sustainable wastewater treatment, while creating hundreds of jobs in communities across the province.
The Government of Alberta plans to build a new interchange in the Town of Cochrane at Highways 1A and 22. It is expected to take approximately two years to complete. By significantly reducing congestion, it will mean less time on the roads. An engineering consultant will be selected by this summer. With design complete, construction could start as soon as the fall of 2019.
