Roads Opening Up Mid-August!


We are pleased to announce that in only a few weeks, 137 Ave and 199 St will be open and ready for the Big Lake residents to use at their convenience.  We understand that the road closures in the past few months have inconvenienced your travels in and out of your neighborhoods.  Thank you for your patience as we work hard to meet our construction deadlines and service your needs.

Our goal is to continue to provide you with timely updates that will impact your community.  We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns.  Please see the contact page on this website to reach out to us. 

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. 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) – possible parallel detour routes will be put in place along 215th Street.  Although it is not anticipated, additional communication will be provided if a road closure is necessary. 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 open as of August 15, 2014.  199St will also open at this date.


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.
