Ray Gibbon Drive Twinning Project

About this Project

On February 25, 2019, the Government of Alberta announced a commitment to partner with the City of St. Albert in sharing the cost to improve Ray Gibbon Drive.

The expansion of Ray Gibbon Drive has been a key priority of St. Albert City Council since the beginning of its term. It has also been a priority for residents, businesses and other stakeholders in the region.

Ray Gibbon Drive is a vital regional road and plays an essential role in St. Albert’s transportation network. Twinning and improving Ray Gibbon Drive will help diversify St. Albert’s economy, spur growth along the corridor, improve transportation efficiency and safety, reduce current traffic congestion and improve the commute for thousands of local, regional and provincial motorists every day.

As part of St. Albert’s 2019-2021 Business Plan and 2019 Budget, Council approved funds for the initial design work on twinning Ray Gibbon Drive. The design work is expected to begin in 2019, with construction to begin in 2020.

Construction will take place in four phases over a 10-year period, starting at the south end of the road. The City will manage the entire project.

When complete, Ray Gibbon Drive will be a four-lane arterial road built to a municipal standard, with sidewalk trails, curbs, lights and intersections leading to the rest of St. Albert.

The City welcomes resident’s comments on Ray Gibbon Drive. Please use this link to provide feedback.
