17 Street & Baseline Road Jughandle
Strathcona County
Sherwood Park, AB

After completing a functional concept study, Al-Terra determined that a conventional design for this intersection would not accommodate high traffic volumes, but a jughandle design would. Al-Terra was retained to complete design and construction engineering for implementation of the jughandle, including two new traffic signals and existing signal modification. Since opening, the jughandle has exceeded expectations in reducing queues and congestion. A decrease in collisions is also predicted with the removal of left hand turns.
