Traffic disruptions due to this construction project are expected to be minimal to none, but any updates will be posted here.
On May 1, 2017 construction began to improve and expand the east section of Highway 19 west of the QEII Highway.
The 1.8 kilometre section of Highway 19 adjacent to the airport will be increased to six lanes.
As well, a new intersection will be constructed at 42nd Street and the 34th Street intersection will be upgraded and traffic lights installed.
This work is being done as part of the first step in twinning Highway 19, and to provide capacity for current and future development.
The intersection improvements and additional highway lanes will improve safety and access at this critical junction.
