City of Fort Saskatchewan

The Government of Alberta recently announced a commitment to “twin” the Fort Saskatchewan Highway 15 Bridge across the North Saskatchewan River linking to Sturgeon County. Discussions on incorporating a pedestrian crossing into this new bridge are underway so that this important link in TCT’s The Great Trail will be complete. The project is expected to take five years to complete. A provincial historic site plaque recognizing the history of the Athabasca Landing Trail is being developed for installation near the beginning of the ALT. Fort Saskatchewan’s existing section of trail will connect south to the City of Edmonton and River Valley Alliance TCT system via new sections of trail being built in Strathcona County this summer. The County has completed one section of the trail north of Sherwood Drive, the Petroleum Way Trail has been started, and work on the other Sherwood Drive sections will commence shortly..
