Yellowhead Trail Upgrades

Such a missed opportunity to build a fly over at 149th. Just bottle necks the traffic in St Albert Trail and on 156st. Oh well that will probably be added in 10 years.

I don't think so. 149 St ceases to be a major arterial north of the Yellowhead.
 
Yeah, the only real concern is people from NB 149th Street wanting to take a left onto WB Yellowhead. Could be mitigated by making St. Albert Trail a DDI for an easier turnaround.

The route was upgraded a few years back and did carry quite a bit of traffic up to 137th ave. yah it still wasn't 4 lane all the way but it still was busy. There was a lot of movement along that route for people accessing 137 east and west bound. If there was a back up on ST Al Trail it was a great alternate route.
 
This is where Culligan Water used to be. Photo made last week.

Okay, I was already so excited to cruise down the Yellowhead when it's fully free-flow, but when it becomes elevated through Blatchford? Oh that's gonna be sick 🤩
Alas, another year goes by with NO actual overpass construction either on HERE, 127 or Fort. Road.
 
Just a couple of thoughts:
- 121 St from the Yellowhead to Kingsway should be renamed to VIA Rail Trail
- 107 St from the Yellowhead to 118 Ave should be renamed to NAIT Trail
