The new McKenzie interchange at the Trans Canada Highway will be built as a partial cloverleaf, Transportation Minister Todd Stone announced today.
Technical analysis of the $85 million project shows the partial cloverleaf will operate more safely and efficiently than a diamond interchange option.
A government release says the design also improves access for cyclists, pedestrians and transit users.
It provides a separated route for a wider Galloping Goose Trail with a new path over the highway and McKenzie Avenue, avoiding the lights and vehicle traffic.
The project will also include bus lanes, transit priority signals, and improved connections to bus stops.
