View draft layout

In response to the community's input, the project team has a preferred alternative layout to share, which includes roundabouts at 640th St. (hospital) and Harry Rich Dr.

The final concept further improves access to Hwy 10 and addresses safety concerns as travelers enter the city from the west or east at high speeds. View the layout at City Hall (222 2nd Street SE) or download here:
