On Friday, Canadian federal officials and representatives from Canadian Pacific and the city of Edmonton held a ceremonial signing event to mark the construction of the Queen Elizabeth II Highway and 41 Avenue Southwest Intermodal Access project in Edmonton, Alberta.The $205 million project will provide intermodal access to a new CP intermodal facility. The work involves the construction of a new interchange on the highway and avenue, and a grade separation for the CP intermodal facility, as well as highway realignments, a new bridge structure and upgrades to the avenue to handle traffic generated by the intermodal terminal.CP's intermodal terminal will be relocated further away from a residential area to a site adjacent to the proposed project. The relocation will reduce traffic congestion near the existing facility, federal officials said in a press release.The federal government will provide up to $75 million for the project, while the province of Alberta will allocate $57.5 million and city of Edmonton will contribute $72.5 million."The intermodal access project is a crucial addition to Edmonton's transportation infrastructure [and] provides an important link to the provincial transportation corridor," said Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel.
