Highway construction to begin on airport trade corridor
December 1, 2022 By Global News
An interchange connected to one of Alberta’s busiest highways is set to start construction late this year, and officials anticipate the new connection will bolster business in Leduc and around Edmonton airport.
The corridor, which will connect at Highway 2 and 65 Ave, “will drive economic momentum in Alberta’s growing warehousing and logistics industry by connecting one of the busiest stretches of highway in Alberta with the Edmonton International Airport and key cargo hubs, delivering safer, more efficient connections between the City of Leduc, the airport and area businesses,” according to a news release from the province Wednesday.
It will also help increase exports to international markets, and save millions of hours for the airport’s inbound-outbound and northbound-southbound commercial traffic.
