Northridge Drive Urbanization Project

To accommodate current development and plan for future growth, the Town needs to make upgrades to Northridge Drive.  Upgrades are needed to create uniformity throughout the corridor.  Presently, the north end of Northridge Drive (between 338 Avenue & Sandstone Gate) is a 4-lane rural standard and requires upgrades to meet growing demand and the overall vision for the Town's future growth.  To view map of project area, please click the button below.

Southbound Lane Closure on Northridge Dr
Update:
As part of phase two of the Northridge Drive urbanization project, there will be a southbound lane closure on Northridge Drive.  This closure will begin August 20 and last approximately two weeks.  Please expect traffic disruptions, watch for signage, workers, equipment and use caution in the area.  The main alternate north/south route will be 32nd Street.

Phase two is expected to be complete later in the fall, weather permitting.  This phase will include constructing a new intersection north of Banister Gate and upgrading approximately 400m of Northridge Drive by developing a multi-use pathway, curb, gutter, underground stormwater infrastructure, landscaping, traffic signals and widening the road. See images of work area and designs below. This work is being done to support commercial development in the D’Arcy subdivision.

Overall Project Details

In alignment with the Town’s 2016 Transportation Master Plan, the following recommended upgrades are required for the long-term:

​• Road widening (from 4 to 6 lanes)
• Roadway upgrades (e.g. curbs, gutters)
• New accesses with signalized intersection
• Stormwater ponds
• Landscaping (e.g. planters, boulevards, trees)
• Active transportation upgrades (e.g. multi-use pathways, improved network connections)

The goal of this project is to provide sustainable, well-organized vehicle and pedestrian movement and community-driven infrastructure by creating a vibrant and well-connected transportation network for residents and visitors.  The aim is to also supplement new neighbourhood growth, encourage active living and improve daily commutes.
