The QEII and 65th Avenue Interchange project is a joint effort between the City of Leduc, Alberta Transportation, and the Edmonton Regional Airports Authority. It will support tremendous growth and development in the City of Leduc, Edmonton Metro Region, as well as provincially and nationally. Learn more about how the project will support economic development.
Construction is expected to take approximately 2-3 years, open in 2025. The work is anticipated to include some temporary closures of the existing flyover, but all efforts will be made to mitigate traffic impacts to the QEII.
The project is estimated to cost $112 million and is being funded through a cost-shared agreement between the Government of Alberta ($96.4 million) and City of Leduc ($15.7 million).
