‘Deathtrap’ intersection to be closed, redesigned

March 3, 2023  By CTV News

A new intersection will replace a dangerous crossroad in Parkland County, which has been the scene of dozens of crashes, Alberta’s transportation minister confirmed to CTV News Edmonton.

In the past 10 years, the RCMP responded to 70 collisions at Highway 16A and Range Road 20 west of Edmonton. Since March 2018, two of those had fatalities, and 26 caused injuries.

The new provincial budget allocated $22 million, to be spent over the next three years, to “address safety concerns” at the intersection.
