The City of St. Albert held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new, major construction project on Wednesday.

Alberta Minister of Transportation Ric McIver and Mayor Cathy Heron held the ceremony to kick off the Ray Gibbon Drive Twinning Project. The project was approved in February 2019, and will officially start on the week of June 1st. The expansion of Ray Gibbon Drive had been a key priority of St. Albert City Council since the beginning of its term, and they approved funds for the initial design work as part of St. Albert’s 2019-2021 Business Plan.

Construction will take place in four phases over a 10-year period, starting at the south end of the road. When complete, Ray Gibbon Drive will be a four-lane road with sidewalk trails, curbs, lights and intersections leading to the rest of St. Albert. The city will manage the entire project.
