Roadway System Master Plan

The Roadway System Master Plan (RSMP) guides the effective management of traffic operations. It identifies the city's future road network requirements based on growth projections outlined in the 2012 Municipal Development Plan.

Also included in the process was a detailed review of the proposed Alberta Transportation improvements to the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 3. This identified potential upgrades to City infrastructure that could be implemented in coordination with the province.

Options for a future south west connector were also presented with an intent to identify a preferred alignment at a future date.

If the animal is located on one of the highways running through town, please contact Volker Stevin toll free at 1-888-877-6237 or 403-526-9079.
