Road Construction in the Greater Big Lake Area

Dear Big Lake Residents and Business Owners,

As spring approaches, the developers of the Big Lake area would like to share our plans for road construction in the area that may impact your community in 2014. Our goal is to minimize any inconvenience this activity may cause to the residents and area businesses, by providing you with accurate and timely communication.

The following road construction activities are planned this year: 

  1. Arterial upgrades to 215th Street (Winterburn Road) from Yellowhead Trail to Hawks Ridge Boulevard – vehicular access will remain OPEN throughout with parallel detour routes. Construction is anticipated to start April 15, 2014, with completion projected for October 2014.
  2. Hawks Ridge Pass (animal crossing) on 215th Street (Winterburn Road) – parallel detour routes will be put in place along 215th Street. Construction is anticipated to start April 15, 2014, with completion in October 2014. 
  3. 137th Avenue west of Starling Drive to the east limit of Horseshoe Creek will be closed during construction. Construction is anticipated to start May 1, 2014, with completion projected for July 2014. 
  4. The extension of the currently upgraded collector road (199th Street) to 70 meters past Blackbird Link will be closed during construction. Construction is anticipated to start May 1, 2014, with completion projected for July 2014. 

Please refer to the map below for more detailed information. 

Construction schedules are subject to change, based on weather conditions and other factors outside of our control. And, most importantly, everyone’s safety is our top priority. Follow the posted speed limit signs, and follow the detour routes as required. 

Online project updates will be available throughout construction at each community website. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we work together to improve long-term access to the communities of Big Lake.
