The City and County of Grande Prairie are hosting an in-person open house and online survey to gather public input on recommendations for future roadway network connectivity in the lands located south of the Grande Prairie Airport.  

The municipalities are working together on a Transportation Study to coordinate existing and future roadway connectivity in the region. The study covers the area south of 100 Avenue (formerly Highway 43) between 132 Street/Range Road 65 and 124 Street/Range Road 64, and aims to identify potential future road network upgrades and improvements required for more seamless and efficient connectivity. 

"In our collaborative efforts to shape the future of our communities, this partnership between the City and County highlights our dedication to facilitating safe and efficient transportation," said City of Grande Prairie Mayor Jackie Clayton. "It allows us to work towards building a stronger economy, poised and prepared to seize new investment opportunities." 

“It is important to check in with residents, area businesses, and other community members to make sure that the final Transportation Study reflects the values and priorities of those who are invested in the area,” says County of Grande Prairie Deputy Reeve Peter Harris. “As our region continues to grow and prosper, a well-planned road network is essential to support continued development.” 

Recognizing the significance of this initiative, both municipalities have enlisted the expertise of McElhanney Ltd., a consulting firm, to oversee the project. 

Second Public In-Person Open House 

Initial public engagement included an open house and public survey last June. Input received provided valuable information to the project team, who went on to develop recommendations based on existing studies and engagement feedback.  

Community members are invited to a second in-person open house to review and provide input on the draft Transportation Study and recommended future road network upgrades. 

Date: Thursday, September 21, 2023 

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
